Hi

Whats the best way to drill some metal, for the bonnet lifters

Tried a metal 6mm drill bit in power drill but no luck.

Taking the bit off ain't an option

A sharp metal drill bit and plenty of patience. Drills get hot on metal, and cannot be forced. Just take it steady and persevere. You'll get through in the end!

Are you sure it's a metal bit and not a wood one? Also is it sharp?

um a high speed on da drill, if uve got a variable one n a gentle pressure on it. :D

depends wot the density of the metal is, but it shud only take you about 10 minutes each hole!

dont force it thou, as u will bust ur drill, n da drill piece n make an awful mess of da metal

:)
