Hey everyone. I recently bought this little Honda CRX. Its in pretty good shape except for this one spot. Looks like it was damaged and someone did a very poor job of fixing it and then just painted. Seriously I have no idea what they did or were trying to do. Does anyone have any advice on making this look decent? Ive used body filler a couple of times in the past for small dents and such but nothing like this.

Any advice is appreciated!

first thing I would do is pull the inside interior panel off and see if you have access to the damaged area. if you do then you can push all that dented area back out to were it should be. take your time don't just start wailing on it. you may have to fab some pry tools or wood pieces to push it out using a hammer in some spots. I assume you don't have a stud welder.
