Another option if you don't mind a cosmetic blemish on the inside where no one will see it unless they are looking is to cut small pieces of steel and use JB Weld to plug and fill the holes. Use the small piece of metal as a backing. The JB Weld sands really nice. Just put a little body filler in any place where the JB Weld didn't fill, sand and prime.

No welding required! This is what I did because I don't have any welding friends close by.

I'll try my best to make it but I've been battling a bad cold. Hopefully my meds cure this darn thing before then.
