How to repair 70's mount-HOLE on 60's bass shell?

Is this worth the time & effort doing on a 60's 18" bass with a 70's double tom mount cut into virgin shell?

If so, how the 'ell is it done properly?

Re: Big Thank you for members pointing out choice listings ...

Garbled message; but I think I get it. You guys who are wet behind the ears crop pics and then ask $ like you think no one else is on the case.

Re: Price check 1966 ludwig black oyster snare
