Drilling through fiberglass/carbon fiber?
Well I just got a new spoiler (finally) and the fitment is slightly off so I need to do a little drilling. I was wondering if there were any special requirements for drilling through Fiberglass/carbon fiber? Thanks in advance.

never did carbon fiber, but Fiberglass isn't that bad. just take it slow. start with a smaller drill bit and work your way up. take it slow...
