I will look into glazing putty next time I am in CTC or Autopro. Honestly though I usually just skim coat a really thin layer of bondo over my sanded bondo repair. With a thin coat and lots of pressure using either a narrow plastic or steel spreader I have always gotten what I thought were good results.
By the way, I put body filler on the repairs today and sanded the area. I am very pleased. my goal was to even out to the level of the gel coat and since I was working on the top back corners it was important to maintain the profile.

Red putty is lacquer based and not really compatible with anything but lacquer products although some people still use it with everything, so they still make it. Your way is better and will give you less problems.
