Advice needed for working with lead foil

Hey guys,
I'm planning on replacing the rear tool bins on my Panther with scratchbuilt ones (dented) fashioned from lead foil. Once the template is created from the original kit part, and the foil folded into shape, I'm wondering what type of glue to use to fill the seams. Would 5-min epoxy work best? And will Humbrol putty be okay / compatible to use for filling any remaining gaps at the outside edges? As for paint, should I use primer before my base coat? I've not started building these just yet and only have a small section of lead foil, so there's not much room for error here. Thankyou for any help you guys can provide,
