If they just body hammer tap and bevel in the edges of the holes and bondo over them and repaint the lid the plastic filler will shrink from sunlight heat cycles in a short time and there will be ugly dimples where the holes were.

If the holes are brazed or welded up then ground and sanded flush and then painted the work will cost more and you'll never have dimples where the holes were.

Final price depends on your geographic location and labor rates.
