Yes Bill that part was quite a mess. You did well. I'm not really qualified to answer your question as I'm no expert. But on .040" material for an aircraft I don't think you want to file it. I would put marking blue on it as a guide coat and use 1000 wet and dry on a sanding block. We need someone like Kent to chime in on this.
I have done plenty of paint refinishing over the years and guide coats do pick out the highs and lows.
