That's a tough one. I just widen the hole. Cutting bottom seems like a lots more potential issues.

If you cut anything, you should use some epoxy to seal up raw metal.

I think I'm going to go with this plan. Least invasive. I agree about protecting the metal after drilling too. Going to have to post an update when I get this sucker mounted / finish the reno. In too deep now!

This process to widen hole will cost a lot. Get a different drain from a specialized plumbing store. It will probably cost less than drilling out hole.

Sometimes you just need to cut your losses and change plans.
