A Roto-Zip with guide and a fine metal cutting tip. Use masking tape to reduce splintering and act as a guide.

If using a circular saw put the blade in backwards. The teeth will not bite into the siding and cause it to rip. A dremel tool to cut the siding the you could us a jig saw to cut the rest of the opening.

I have one of these and use it for many projects. I love it and I have all the saws, grinders,roto zip, hole saw. This would be my choice without a second thought. Good luck and post some pictures.

I would either just use the cuttoff wheel( that's what I use a work most of the time) and usually the paint wont curl more than just about 1/32 if that on steel(car bodys) . Or use a hole saw and take my oscilating saw and make the corners. .....honestly I think I would just use my 3" cuttoff wheel and be done 30 seconds ago. Use masking tape to mark the edges- also helps if the blade skips.
- ps. I Work in a body shop- so I have cut couple pieces of metal before

Use a stud finder or other means to locate and mark the internal alum or steel square tube stiffeners. Lay out your hole accordingly if you are cutting blind into the wall.
