Repairing Very Small Hole in Enamel/ Steel Bathtub

I have a bath remodel project just finishing up. Somehow I managed to punch a very small hole thru the bathtub. This will need a good repair that lasts long, can withstand water and small flexes in the tub as the area gets stepped on.

I was looking at this kit:
Bathtub Refinishing Referral Network - Do-it-yourself bathtub, shower, tile, cultured marble repair

But was wondering if anyone has used something else that they had really good results with. I'd appreciate any feedback. Here is what the tub looks like:

It would appear a product like the one you mention would work. The surface may never look the same, as it takes some sanding to get the repair to smooth out, and you have a shell type finish. Be sure to read and follow all the instructions that come with it. You may not have but one chance to make it right.
