Why would you use JBWeld on the rims? Bad idea. If you are filling pits the filler will be fine. If you have "holes" in the rims then you better start welding. If you use JBWeld it will be near impossible to get them sanded smooth.

JB Weld has its place. I use it for the deep pits on the "battery under seat" tractors that have had battery leakage, I don't trust body filler for pits that deep. It takes a LOT of sanding. I then cover the scratches with body filler -- it comes out ok.

The platform or the box?. Should never be pits that deep on tin. My guru body man, 50 years in business and startes with lead, swears you can us the filler as deep as you want on"non flexing parts". Wheels would qualify as would platforms. trust me and try one. Save you lots of work. Or you could break out the torch and the lead sticks and steel paddle :)

The platform, either way will probably work, but I have now been working on my Super M for more than a year, another half day doesn't matter much.
