It's easy to drill through it. Install hood pins. Put marshmallow fluff on the tips of the pins. Lower hood onto pins, this way your leave fluff on the hood where you need to drill. Make sure u drill sorta at an angle from the bottom of hood. Start with a smaller sized bit. you'll get it. I also have a ViS hood..with frpp pins

I've been using non-drying Prussian blue (or red) to make hoods and other panels for years.
Grianger sells it..........
