Default sealing holes in the reclaimed tin

I need some light bright pegs about 500 of them being when the lights are on at night and your outside of the building it looks like your at a planetarium watching the stars so i figure i can make the silicone go a bit further if i plug the holes with the light bright pegs
in short it sucked to be plugging all those holes took a few hours up and down the darn ladder... well mainly cause I was so smart each time I went up the ladder I only took one tube at a time instead of taking the lot of em... yep it's just been a blond moment all day...

Why not just put in a screw in each of the old holes?

Half the holes were oversized even for a lap screw some of the metal came off commercial building where they used a type of welded stud instead of screws sort of like the spot weld dent puller studs and cost per hole for lap screws silicon was a bit more cost effective.

where the light bright peg came from was just kidding around with a friend once we realized at night how many holes there were... look like a star constellation in a planetarium i got the big an small dipper in one wall and who knows what i could get out of the others maybe an open an closed sign that would flash when I'm welding

The silicone worked just fine all that is left is to trim it out and door on front an maybe some of that spray on insulation later.
