Couldn't you use a bent piece of wire or small Allen wrench to spread the JB Weld around the inside? If it were me, I'd do that then cover the hole with tape (Peel-Ply would be great!) to keep the JB Weld from draining out. I'd also mask off the area around the hole to keep the JB Weld from sticking to the leading edge when the tape spreads it out. (I'm assuming the leading edge is facing down.)

Tape a slightly larger area around the holes and slot with packing tape and then a strip of electric tape. This allows some build up tha can be sanded down. Press in the JB weld as mentioned. Make sure you don’t sand the JB weld off back to the aluminum. Just float it where you see a smooth transition, leaving a little material covering the holes and slot. Don’t forget each wing has the slots.

Pop rivets plus paint = barely noticeable

Default Filling stall warning holes in QB wing

I don't have an answer for doing it with the tank attached.

I pulled the tanks to test them and while off I filled the right wing rivet holes with a soft rivets. I had them for fiberglass tip work. Easy. It will require a little bit of filler when painted.

I also installed the stall warning kit on the left wing: Belt and suspenders.

Happy Building,

Default NAS1097 AD3 is a good solution

Use the very small oops rivets to do it instead that will avoid the flat spot. After a little sanding and scotchbrite on mine you can barely tell they are there: NAS1097 AD3

I tried this today. It is only a #40 hole and it didn't seem like the dental pick was getting much in there to work with and the squeegee'ing didn't seem to do it either. In the end I filled it as best I could then left a large blob over the hole. I then put on masking tape and pulled tight. I am hoping that forced a bit more in there and gravity spread it around internally. We'll see tomorrow after it sets up. If it's loose, I'll pull the tanks.
