16 Holes on a ROOF in front part

first I wanted MB Sprinter and it has only ONE antenas whole on a roof, but Sprinters service is 100miles away from my place.

Then I ordered ProMaster from a local dealer (~2miles away. In a custom order I asked a D to close cab's roof-lights. They says it is not possible ,
Last weekend in Oct23,2015 I close Front 16 wholes by my self.

Back lights wholes of 5 Red-Roof-Lights awaiting for a future, to be cloused, or covered some how.

After I painted 3 brackets and central plate, what close 16 holes on a Front part of my ProMaster.
Sorry, have to drill a hole in a central upper bracket to pull wires for future solar panels.

First person I've seen do this. To keep from drilling a hole for solar wires see GaryBIS's solar install. He entered through backup camera housing. I did too, its simple.

Scroll down the page a ways, you'll see some tower brackets and stick-on brackets. I'm using his tower brackets with stick-on pads that are at least 6"x2" in size. With that much VHB adhesive, I don't see any problems with it.

Tnx, I found "Tower brackets for 80-20 crossbars with or without OEM roof rails"
I see DRILLING HOLES needed.
Sorry folks, in a time I removed roof lights, one light cover had moisture inside allredy

Today I welded an elbow's platform-base for running cables from roof to a cab.
(solar-panes and roof-lights).
It keep rain in a Florida for a few days = so, awaiting Sunny weather for a hole drill.
Made pix for You
On a Right side zoomed pix you see central bracket and an elbow lays near-by.
Central bracket mounted into 2 small original holes.
Big original hole designated for a bulb replacement is covered by bracket. From under (inside of a cab) I did not insulate this location, awaiting for drilling
