Overflow miscalculation

Ok I need some help. I ordered the wrong size overflow box... I thought I would still be able to make it work but no luck. What can I do? Is it possible to enlarge a hole drilled in glass with out destroying the tank?

Any ideas are greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!

Some more details would be very helpful, also pictures of the areas you are having issues with, seems what little I can gather you might be able to do some sort of downsize or upsize on your adapters and be just fine.

This box uses a 1 inch bulkhead, the next size up wich will be what I need uses a 1.5 inch. If I un-restrict my return pump the box can't handle it. This is the max pressure it'll let me do...
