You can use 3M's Automix 8115 panel bonder but this is not something a novice should do. If you want it done I would take it to a shop and see what they say.

+1 thats how i would do it. it sets quickly aswell so you have to do it within like 5-10 minutes i belive or it will be already dry enough to sand

You need to heat it up to about 180 dergrees for about 15min or so and let it cool and then you can sand it. But you also need to scuff up the area's that the bonder is going to be applied on with some 80 grit sand paper. After it is all set up I would use a little body filler to cover the panel bonder and to smooth it out because if you just prime over panel bonder and then paint it your primer will shrink back and you will see exactly where you applied 8115. Not to mention the fact you will be really pissed.
