JB weld is an epoxy like substance that becomes machine, drill and tappable once it has cured.

Better than that!! JB Weld is the God of Glues !! It ain't perfect for everything, but if you need to patch any hard surface (it don't flex), have it be sandable, paintable, drillable, etc., JB Weld is the stuff. After reading their advertising, I said "What the heck" and actually patched a cracked headd on a corsica with that stuff.

The only bad part I could see in this application would be that you cant get to the front surface (inside the housing) to smooth it out. You could take a small patch of fiberglass screen and use it as a form. Hold it overthe hole, mix up your JB Weld. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes to get thick and then smear it over the screen. Kind of like mudding sheetrock. Once it cures, you could then sand down the visible part and you'd almost never know the holes were there

Bu just to prevent condensation, some sort of tape over the hols should be more than enough.

I didn't want to tell everyone I'm the one that buys the monster tubes at Advance all the time.

Forget the fiberglass screen. Simple piece of tape works.

Well, going to try out some metallic tape I have that I also used for my cold air box-esk (Silverbullet Style) setup. Tried to make it seal as well as I could. I'll see if rainy state of Washington aproves of it or not.

Yeah, the OEM headlights arn't TOO faded, unlike some Ford lamps. I want to get diamond cut headlamps in the future.

I prefer to use automotive goop. Like the package says... "Bonds whatever, sticks forever!"
