ARB Fawk up, help

Ok, SOME HOW, I grabbed the wrong drill and drilled a 9/16th hole in my housing instead of a 7/16th. WTF do I do now? I checked at the local patrs store for a 9/16th filling that goes down to 7/16th but I couldn't find one. Any other ideas? Maybe somewhere I can find the correct fitting? I know it the holiday weekend and I will have to wait till Tuesday.

You can just thread the 9/16" hole you drilled to whatever size thread fits it and put a pipe plug in it. Then drill another hole next to it to the correct size.

Tap it to whatever is the closest NPT (Probably 1/2Pipe) and use a brass or aluminum pipe bushing to reduce it to the correct NPT.
