Default Removal of cab lights, filling holes

Anyone know how to fill the holes left in the roof after the removal of cab lights? I was thinkin about just taking mine off. I saw somwhere where a guy paid $1200 for it . I dont mind paying for it to be done, but not $1200 lol. I can go to a shop if i get any ideas.

Sounds like you might need to pick up the phone and call a few body shops for some quotes...

Tell me exactly how you would fix it then? I personally think it's impossible to fix without using filler at some point. I guess another option is to replace the cab.

Im not being a smart a%^, but I used to do body work and I don't know of another way. There is a correct and incorrect time to use bondo and in this case depending on how big of a hole it leaves I would tack a piece of metal in the hole, grind it down and finish it with a small amount of filler, prime then paint.

when i took the antena of my honda my dad put bondo and worked fine no leaks or anything.. if you dont want just bondo put pieces of metal in each hole weld sand it down and put bondo too. i think your truck looks sick with the cab lights putting some myself when i get the cash.
