Size patch?

Removing old winegard antenna. There are 32 holes where the antenna was. Is that a record?

How much should patch extend from the holes? Maybe 1 inch?

Also, what is the number of rivets to put the patch on? Maybe three per side? I really don't want to drill more holes in this roof!

Standard ED (edge distance) is 2-4 D (diameter of rivers to be installed). Standard Rivet spacing is 6-8 D

I like to go past the holes at least 1/2 inch with rivets 2 inches apart with sikaflex on all the previous holes and sikaflex on the new patch!
