How far from the damaged area do you recommend I start sanding? And once I apply the glaze and it hardens, what grits do you recommend I use? I know to block sand in a criss cross pattern and to use a dark paint of some sort to show any low spots.

Also, once I get everything level to the touch how will I go about applying primer? It will be out of a can. I'm imagining that I will back tape (or whatever the correct term is) about four or five inches around the repaired area. Do I spray the entire exposed area? Once, that is done, do I need to sand the primer? This question is directed to both tiny rock chips and a couple of golfball sized dents I have. Thank you!
