Personally id drill them out to 9/10mm (depending on what size plugs you make), get myself a plug cutter and with a bit of pva and plug them. Very easy to do and once flushed off look either smart or almost invisible depending what wood you cut the the plugs from.

To get centre all you need is a template and two holes marked up to reference from, easy enough, just mark up an axis through the centre of the cutout parallel to the box sides and mark the two holes using the cutout as reference or if you want the holes offset from centre, You simply need to mark the template with the angle of rotation from the centre axis and instead of marking the two holes in last step you mark the outside of the template on the driver panel instead.

They cut out for m6 bolts so thinking i need 8mm plug to tap in with some pva... not much of a craftsman so going to get the job outsourced but wanted to know what people thought were good options. Nickys is deffo fool proof but just wondering on how airtight it would be...

You can get fluted dowels, which will give better adherance, particularly if used with a polyurethane glue rather than PVA.

If it's got wheels or tits it's gonna cost a fortune

Use an insert nut in the old holes

Then put a bolt in it from the otherside, inside the chamber

Done
