Get your self ready for the skull falling off the panel. Bondo will not hold it. Maybe fer a while. Go to the hardware store get some drywall bolts. You know the type that has the wing nut on the other side that you can bolt. When you run a bolt thru then it opens up like a butterfly on the other sie. Take this nut squeeze it shut put it in the brain cavity and run your bolt thru the panel (predrill) as you tighten the bolt it will open on the inner cranium and hold tight. Then take some heavy epoxey to set the skull in place where it touches the panel (clear). That should solve your problem.
