Better than that!! JB Weld is the God of Glues !! It ain't perfect for everything, but if you need to patch any hard surface (it don't flex), have it be sandable, paintable, drillable, etc., JB Weld is the stuff. After reading their advertising, I said "What the heck" and actually patched a cracked headd on a corsica with that stuff.
The only bad part I could see in this application would be that you cant get to the front surface (inside the housing) to smooth it out. You could take a small patch of fiberglass screen and use it as a form. Hold it overthe hole, mix up your JB Weld. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes to get thick and then smear it over the screen. Kind of like mudding sheetrock. Once it cures, you could then sand down the visible part and you'd almost never know the holes were there
Bu just to prevent condensation, some sort of tape over the hols should be more than enough.
