How are yuou planning on cutting? You have to figure for the thickness of the cutting tool. Let's say you are using a 1/8" saw blade. That means that the patch piece will be 1/8" smaller than the hole, all the way around. That will make a weak butt joint even weaker. You cannot cut a hole and the patch panel at the same time, by placing the patch piece over it, and have them the same size.
