Have any of you guys successfully repaired a grenaded car body?

I accidentally stepped on this Challenger body,breaking it into five pieces...I managed to glue the body panels back together but in some places I had to let the glue dry on one side so that I could rejoin the panels in proper alignment.Laud down the putty and will sand it down and primer it

Hey!

        That looks like how I collected and rebuilt model ships when I was a tad! Awesome! We didn't have Putty back then so I experimented and came up with a mix of Glue and Little plastic bits on a piece of paper. Nowadays we make it in bottles of semi- retired glue and call it Spru-Gloo!

Model; heck, I had an actual car that looked like that !!!  We called it the "claymore-mobile", cuz that's what it looked like it had been hit by.
