Damaged puma truck - Panel repair help

My cat threw my truck off the mezzanine at home ... I was hoping that some crazy glue would be sufficient ... But the metal back panel is bent ...

Thoughts?

JB Weld the part back in place, using rubber band or binder clip or something to secure it as best you can until the epoxy kicks.
Once secure you can fill sand paint.

The cast zinc/pot metal cannot be bent back once it has been deformed.

For starters, let your cat loose in the back alley of an Asian eatery.

Hey hey hey, watch it with the Asian slurs. We do not eat or serve cat, only the finest canines! Felines are strictly catch and release. They taste like shit.
