Nope... Cut it out and replace the (hopefully) small section of metal that was ripped.... including a few inches all around. Metal stretches when it's ripped, and there's no shrinking it back.... Not with heat or ice or anything - not with ripped holes and all - and the jagged half moon thing - even with no holes - it was almost a hole and ytou need to rplace the metal.
If you're like me and don't have money yet for a body-man, buy a bottle of "rust-eater-gel" or just aything that says Phosphoric Acid on the label. Brush some on, let it sit for awhile and then wipe off and prime the area.
One less rusted Alfa is a saved Alfa!
