Dolphin Glaze is a very fine filler that is ideal for filling pinholes. Putting primer on thickly to try and fill them will normally cause runs and it will probably cause more problems.

Looks nice, good luck with the sale. Yellow will be the deciding factor as it is very much a marmite colour!
Sensible reserve and the wheels will be a big plus for most buyers
