Has anyone tried to drill out holes and re-install the OEM warning lights into the Quadtech Hood? Just curious if/how it turned out.....

Thats my next project. If you slide your OEM hood underneath the quadtech, you can use it as a guide for the holes. I plan to mark the center point of each and drill a pilot from the back side then drill to the full size in a couple stages.

The carbon fiber drills out nicely, so it should be fine.

i did this to my hood ill post a pic in a day or 2 hopefully, i just took the old hood and used it as an template for the new one. Marked out the hole with a sharpie marker and used a step bit to drill them out.

yah i was going to say unibit but i didnt know if it was called a stepbit in the US. Definetly dont use a normal bit itll chunk out very easy. Goodluck.
