I used Araldite Precision (the two part Syringe Dispenser type). I used almost one whole one on the two fronts and about 1.5 for both the rears. It works quite well but mixed it up a bit at a time. Think we had about 20 min working time but would depend on the temp etc.

Oh and one tip, make sure you use plenty so it squeezes out when you tighten up the covers.  My second wheel could have done with a bit more and I ended up filling gaps between the spokes and hub cover on some using a cocktail stick and filler before painting.  Far easier to clean off any afterwards than fill gaps.

You can also get the two hour epoxy. I used it and mixed larger batches without any problem.
