Which plastic filler?

Hi guys

I've just ordered a replacement rear brow for the GC WK2 so that I can remove the Jeep logo then fill, flush and paint. I've done bodywork in the past but never had to fill something as deep as the recess where the Jeep badge used to live.

My thoughts would be to rough up the recess and use a fine steel mesh with a 3m plastic bumper repair kit as a filler, once built up enough use bondo for fine fill then paint as normal.

What are your thoughts? I don't want this cracking or sagging.

How much was the replacement? I've been considering filling one myself.

I paid just under $600 AUD, I think you can get them in the US for about $300.
