All excellent advice, but watch out for this !
Metal is cut with a sharp bit, but when you get to the plastics of your windshield, look out, the sharp bit will grab it and more than likely crack it, now it's worse, how we drill canopies on aircraft is with a high speed, very dull bit, setup for just this purpose, we melt our way through, so we don't crack it, believe me the first time your nice pretty drill bit grabs and trashes a piece of plexiglass, you will want to scream. So I hope your drilling your metal hole with the plastic shield removed, then put some masking tape in place, on the plexi, and melt your new hole in the new location. Hope this makes sense, do it right, don't screw the pooch. Replacement shields are around 150 for the typical Strat units.
