    Check whats on the other side of the sheetmetal first. Pilot hole, then screw....or drill a hole and insert bolt with washers and nut.

    1st off know what is beyond what you can see so you do not drill into the gas tank or into a wiring harness, or fuel or brake line or spare tire

    after you confirm that your safe to drill

    use a drill bit smaller then the screw to drill a pilot hole

    then screw your screw in and only go 1/2 way

    finish off by hand screwdriver as not to strip the hole out

    do not use screws that are longer then you actually need and use a washer

    use a drill bit for metal
    not one for wood or concrete

    No...what I think he is referring to....is that by you coming here and presenting yourself in such an eloquent manor, he has a conceived notion that an undertaking such as this may be better suited for persons of superior intellectual prowess.
