Gluing Patch Panel

Hey everyday sales driver is rusting right below the gas filler door..It has a zillion miles on it but doesnt look too bad otherwise...

I want to patch the 6" x10" rust area by cutting it out and then flanging and then replacing it with a good patch from a donor car....I want to avoid dropping the gas tank and welding and wonder if the new panel adhesives would work in this situation for an everyday driver that just needs to look a little better. I suppose a few rivets could hold it in place while it is drying, a skim coat, and then a quick blend job...

Anyone tried this method of repair....
