I believe the proper way to do it is by fiberglassing and then using a flexible bonding agent (not bondo persay). Could be wrong though...I just left the holes after doing the cartwheels on the track. lol

I am not too great with chemical reactions. I am the dumb to start a chemical fire by accident in chem. lab at my high school. I much rather slab bondo on it and use some elbow grease and sand it down.

Another option is to plastic weld it and then sand

If the panel is plastic, Bondo or fiberglass won't stay for long. There isn't enough flexibility if it's got any thickness to the amount filler applied and there are often adhesion issues as well. I've fixed composite (sharkskinz), fiberglass on older Ducs and plastics and I only use 3m duramix and automix. It's worth the money to only do it once.
