Some pics of thepack would help us to gauge it properly Perrbear.
Its always best to use mechanical fixings wherever possible instead of glue, its much easier to repair and replace parts that way and its a much stronger connection over all.
Although when I need to use glue I like to use JB weld original two part epoxy.
Its a 24hr cure but its one of the strongest adhesive bonds you can get in my experience.
Typically , the longer the cure time for epoxy adhesives the stronger the bond.
The white stuff is most likely a two part epoxy putty.
There are loads of brands available but again, I've found jb welds epoxy putties to be some of the best.
Especially the steel stik.
Paint is down to personal preference but I like to use good quality grey primer, followed by a black satin paint.
It depends where youre located for the brand.
Here in the UK we have a great shade of satin black made by Halfords which seems pretty close to the shade of the paint on the original packs .
For US alternatives brands you might want to look into either Krylon , rustoleum or Montana.
