This is exactly how i have done all my restoration. Doing a door even if it looks straight...fill the entire door and block with a 4' bock using 80 grit and working it all the way down to 500 grit BEFORE primer. Then if you use wax and grease remover and spray it on your panel you can check your low spots usually from over sanding or pressing too hard deforming your base material.Yep, it's tedious but not hard. When I contoured a very badly wavy wing I made the mistake of working on small areas. We felt the wing and marked low spots with pencil then mixed small (Dixie cup size) batches of dry micro. We had a lot of troughs to fill and it took a long time. Should have mixed the micro in a salad bowl and slathered it on the whole wing in one pass.
