Temp repair to hole from dent in roof.

I have to quater size holes from a dent in roof from falling tree limb the area is pretty bent up with small creases so a patch will not work it won't lie flush. Any good repair stuff like vulcan maybe ? suggestions. I do plan on replacing that area with new section but I need a temp seal for now .

I use that aluminum foil tape for smaller hole. Otherwise cut a patch from aluminum flashing put sealant(Vulkem or Sikaflex) under the edges and rivet or use small sheet metal screws around the side.

....so many Airstreams....so little time...
