Nice work mate..
Your canopy skirt looks like mine..1 piece fibreglass
The problem i find with 410 filler is when you feather it out you will keep chasing pin holes.
Once i got mine flat with 410 i put it in the sun and brushed a 2k epoxy primer on it using the paint brush to fill the pin holes applying several coats.
It will look crappy but spray a black guide coat and block sand and try not to hit the fibreglass again .Spray one or two coats of epoxy primer again and its done.
I do all my fibreglass parts this way
