What is the best way to repair dents in gas tank before powdercoat?

I want to get my tank powder coated but I have two small dings. What is the best way to repair these dings? They are hard to reach from inside the tank so I think I might try to fill them with silver solder or brass braze and then sand them down. Any advice?

I have used jb weld as a body filler and it allows powder to stick. No heat necessary. (edited)

Was the jb weld spot discolored?

Nope I didn't have any problems I used the original if that helps along with a solid color. what color are you doing? maybe someone else will chime in on this (edited)

Ok. I was doing some research and the jb weld works well with solid colors but not with metal flake. I think I might try epo-strong which was developed by a well known powder coat supplier.
