I want to shave off the side molding, i know in my sig it looks like its already done but most of that pic is photoshop except for the rims, my tails and headlights arent black, its not that low, theres some scratches on both front and back bumpers and the windows arent tinted. Anyways, i wanted to try and do it myself along with a friend, or my uncle who knows body work, I was thinking if i can just take the molding off, fill in the strip with fiberglass almost to where its level with the body surface, then just even it out with bondo, it would be less risky that cutting and welding another piece maybe cheaper too, i just wanna know if theres anything wrong with the idea, also, i want to shave the antenna in the same way, put in fiberglass from the back and even it out with bondo on the top

With your plan, along with the changes in weather (and humidity); it's going to crack. The only good and long term way to do it is to weld a flat piece of metal in there. And I'd assume it'd be a pretty difficult task to get the doors, back panel, and fenders to all look even with each other. Not something you could do yourself, unless you know how to do body work well.
