It looks like it is right on a weld, it also looks like you are going to have to pound on that area. If it were me I would weld it back up poly filler will fall out in a short time, I would think and I don't know what JB weld will do.

If you absolutely cannot weld it, do the hammer and dolly
work and then use panel adhesive to fill the gap.
You can then use AllMetal or body filler to smooth it all out.

take 3 minutes to weld that shut and be done with it. Glues and puttys are just band aids IMHO.
