Find someone with a hole saw bit the right size and cut a plug of steel with it out of a scrap sheet metal. Tack it in place with a mig welder and weld it in place using a block of brass on the backside to help prevent burning through.(Brass won't weld itself to the metal).Then using the brass again as a backer fill in the drill bit hole,and do the body work. When welding only weld for a few seconds, then give it a blast of air from the compressor till it cools down. This will prevent the roof from warping. Or put the KC lights back in. Good luck.
