    I'd have thought one of the many epoxy putties available... just have to make sure the 'site' is spotlessly and chemically clean, bare metal though.

    I used Belzona when I did my 5th alloy refrub... tad expensive but then I had access to 'out of date' MoD 'scrapped' product back then. It set like original metal and is still there now (albeit under about 7 coats of paint and 3 of laquer).

    I use chemical metal on rim refurbs, seems tougher than standard body filler although I have used both before.
