Try using some coins(copper) 2 PENCE AND 1 PENCE and apoxy once stuck fill from top with the usual filler and rub down, guarenteed not to rust !

You could go that extra mile with the angle grinder and have a world first - Volvo V70 T5 Targa!

best way would be to get a plate welded from the inside to cover the holes then fill, its worth paying abit extra to have it done properly because the roof will flex & bend & eventualley the filler will work loose & than stand out a mile then respray yep 100 to 150 seema about right for the roof section

Probably the best way is to remove the Roof lining and braize all the holes with suitable pieces,Otherwise it will be a nightmare if it fails again with all the stress in the roof.
