You would be best to use a good epoxy primer over bare metal.  Unless they are very tiny, you still want to do your best to straighten the metal.  If the dings are slight enough , you can use polyester spot putty instead of bondo.  Use of older lacquer based spot putty is not recommended.  Make sure you know how to use these products as improper uuse can mess things up.

Ditto!👍

 

Lacquer spot putty is just thick lacquer primer-surfacer. As it dries out over the years, it shrinks. Avoid!

 

Epoxy primer can be used under polyester filler (Bondo) and polyester spot putty (fine grain Bondo). Read your particular epoxy primer directions to make sure.
