Stucco repair advice please

I have this damage on the corner of a column outside the garage...yes, it was hit by a car! Somebody tried repairing it with some unknown gunk as you can see. I'm thinking I need to chip all that off and then use something like Stucco Patch.

But the hole is a couple of inches deep so do I need to make up a wood form to hold that much material in there, or just mix it fairly dry so that it will adhere?

Sorry that the pics are turned around. I don't know how to fix that.

I'd tack a form on just to keep it from settling out and use multiple layers of latex stucco patch. I know some will say go ahead and buy and mix stucco, but the patch in a tub seems to have worked ok for me. Just can't fill it all at once or it will take forever to dry.

I've never used the patch in a tub stuff. I'd stuff some screen wire or something in the hole and then patch it.

Should I leave those screws in? Somebody obviously tried to use them as rebar.

As long as the screws are below the finished surface they shouldn't hurt anything, might even help give the repair stucco more to grab onto.
