With a layer as thin as 1/16" you should be fine that the bodywork itself won't crack. De-lamination, however, may occur where it meets the plastic, since you might not have great mechanical adhesion with the filler and the plastic(didn't drill holes for resin to bite). If you gave an aggressive sanding to where the resin is laid, you might be fine and might not experience de-lam. I don't think the bulk of your work will crack, just possibly the problem areas of where it meets the plastic(due to your prep work). I hope this info helps, that's all I'm trying to do, not pick apart your work.

Actually I did drill holes before for the body filler went down and also through the resin so its holding down pretty well. and the filler is sanded as thin as I could get it possible 1/16 to 1/8 inch thick in most spots., sprayed with primer, then  3 coats sealer and finally textured paint few coats

Final pics once the pillars are installed. Now just need to figure out how to secure the tweeters from the inside it's not a press fit. I'm thinking hot glue? Soundstream sst-05 bullet tweeters

not bad for your first time! I think painting the whole pillar would look better. In the pics it looks off just having that section painted.
