I don’t like hiding repairs on skins. I want to know it’s there down the line.
There are a lot of good suggestions here. First, verify it isn’t a structural concern. If it isn’t, you’re free to do whatever you want, which you are anyway in EAB but….
I would do the backer adhered with Proseal or? And insert a formed aluminum “plug” to match skin thickness. You will still see the plugged hole, but after paint, you will probably be the only one that ever notices. It will simply look like a small round circle in your paint. You could even paint the plug red or something and put a small black dot in the center and folks will wonder what that special sensor is.
If you decide to make it disappear, I have had great luck with Superfil. It’s expensive but doesn’t shrink and sticks very well long term.
