hammer55... It's no big deal to drill the fiberglass. I used a smaller bit to make the first hole then a drill the same size as the tie strap. Just be sure to drill at the top of the opening, not the bottom. As you can see in my pic, on the left I drilled the bottom and then realized what I had done and drilled the top on the right side. Makes a big difference in the look (IMHO). Thankful I had touch-up paint from FR.
