shaker pins

just bought a 2000 Cobra R carbon fiber hood. (my cars black, and no I'm not taking off the GT insignias and replacing them with a Cobra one.)
Anybody have advice about drilling through carbon fiber? Special drill bits? Handy tricks? I'd hate to F-up my hood.

Re: shaker pins

the only thing i can tell you is to drill it slow so you dont pull fibers off and mess it up~ but generally the hood pics have a round part that covers the area where the hole was~ measure 10 times drill once
