    I have a coin door I want to fix up with a paint job but it has a few extra holes I want to cover before panting. Something like wood putty for cabinet but that works well with metal, any good suggestion?

    Fiberglass epoxy resin.

    JB Weld epoxy, might work.

    What material is it? It looks like die cast pot metal. In that case I would use JB weld or any similar type of thickened reinforced epoxy. If its stamped steel I would close them up with the mig welder.

    I used JB weld Steel Stick on one I had on a WCS I got. There were something like 8 holes. I was pleased with how it turned out.

    This is the JB weld I used. It comes in a tube, you cut or pinch off the amount you need and squish it up to activate it. It's kind of like plato, so it's easy to shape and use. Want to say it starts to harden in 5 - 10 min, so be ready once you activate it. I'm not sure how easy the epoxy you have in that link would be to use. Here's the stuff I used, also at Home Depot: http://www.homedepot.com/p/J-B-Weld-2-oz-J-B-SteelStik-Epoxy-Putty-Stick-8247/202528470

    Agreed. JB Weld is the way to go. Great stuff. Paintable too.
