I have had good luck with a toothpick mix of powdered graphite and crazy-
glue.  This mixture cures a bit slower than c-g plain and is somewhat
flexible and gap filling.  Experiment.

If appearance allows, a filet of baking soda on the inside will
harden into a structural material with the application of some more c-g.
Practice on some junk, cause this hardens IMMEDIATELY.  For a smoother
filet, I sometimes draw a bead of glue and sprinkle or puff the bicarb
onto it until saturated.  Magic marker will provide the color of
your choice after sanding or filing or not.
