I am going to have to do the same thing to replace my Auto Lamp 575's with Bargman 99's. The holes from the Auto Lamps will be bigger than the replacement lights on the Bargmans. I am going to make aluminum patches that are larger yet the same shape, and when riveted, in my mind they will look very good. I base this on other patches I have seen, although I cannot point to any picture examples at the moment.
