Did the front having the whole panel altogether.

Put 3 parts Olive texture and 1 part Golden texture around edges of untraced pieces and for pit mark texture on front and spattered this same mixture on the front using small bristle brush and mixing paint with ordinary turpentine

mainly where the pit mark texture was too strong I lightened it and rubbed.
