If a mild kludge/bodge is okay, shape a piece of sheet metal of appropriate type/thickness/size as a shield to bridge the hole snugly, then strap it on with "Jubilee clips". I don't know if a sealant would be necessary. Two JCs should do it. For non-UK readers: Jubilee clips are entirely metal. They wrap around cylindrical objects, usually pipes, and are tightened by a slotted hex-head bolt mounted tangential to the strap. The bolt turns a screw, which engages with slots pressed into the strap, so the whole thing works as a worm drive, dragging the strap past the bolt and tightening it. -- Andrew Stephenson
