If it were me i would get the entire area as smooth as possible then skin the entire area with another coat of body filler then sand it prime it and paint it.

Only the areas that have been repaired have to be primed but if you choose to prime the whole thing you still can.
ok sounds good pics of progress will be posted... also just posted an emblem for the hood so now i kno i can remove that ... mow all i neeed is the lettering for the trunk :)

Don't bring it down to bare steal - the factory paint base is better than anything you're going to apply - so the more you leave in tact, the better the health of the metal.

Just scuff it. bring it down to bare metal where needed (rust), but body filler before paint.

and the only reason that its going to the metal is cause the trunk is so "bubbly" in spots
