Trunk Panels

I'm going to start a trunk mod in the next couple of days that I purchased off of the forum.  It is one of Cobra Earl's Touring Trunk Mods.  First I need to mark and drill all of the holes in the trunk panels.  I started with the bottom one.  I used a #30 drill bit that has been mentioned for a 1/8" rivet.  I bought short length drill bits as recommended by DJMcCormack.  This was a very helpful, and I didn't break a bit.  I would dip them in some cutting oil when drilling into the steel.

Then the top one.

Here is why they tell us to remove the aluminum panels after drilling.  Look at all of the steel shavings under the panel after drilling.  I vacuumed up all of them with my shop vac.
