Default plastic roll cage screw hole filler?

My new "thing" is painting the Axial roll cages gloss black so that they look more like a metal cage. Problem is the screws that hold the cage together are a dead giveaway. Has anybody filled the holes to cover the screws? With what product? I'm looking for something that can be sanded and painted. Has anybody done this? Bondo?

Just a thought 2 part epoxy should stick well hold up is sandable and paintable but you will never see those screws again

That's what I figured, but I should never have to take apart a JK cage. Gotta sacrifice for the look.

Kneadatite Green stuff epoxy putty... dries semi flexible.. sandable, paintable.. and yet soft enough you could dig it back out with a knife later if you needed to.

I have use black RTV silicone to fill in the voids on the back of the lights. I imagine it may work for this. I am not sure about the painting, but once dry the silicone blends well with the plastic.

I build a lot of 28mm models and this stuff is awesome. Easy to work with and should hold up great for what you are needing it for.

Just wondering if you got around to trying this and if it worked.

Rubberized black CA glue for tires would work great for that. Clean the holes good with rubbing alcohol or the like first.
