You can use hollow all thread tube, available at your local hardware store in the lighting/electrical section, to do the same thing a bit cleaner, and run the wires through the tube. That has held up for years and some abuse on my truck.

Here's a custom cut-away look at the finished repair...

@-Spike- just finished this repair. Great call on using threaded tube and your photo was very helpful. I bought 3” & 3.5” lengths just in case. In retrospect 4” threaded tube would’ve been even nicer. Found it all in the lamp/electrical section of a specialty hardware store. $5 well spent. While I was in there did the wobbly mirror zip tie fix too.

That is a great looking fix. Just did the lamp all thread job and am back on the road, don't like the final fit and don't really trust the hardware. Will replace with your fix rather then shopping aftermarket or buying used and painting. Thanks!
