327, I do instrumentation and electrical work for a living and even when using a knockout on an elec. panel, it tends to pull the paint from around the edge of the hole. And the enclosure paint is alot thinner than it would be on your ride. Not only that, it can "pull" the metal out around the edges and create an uneven surface that you would have to rework. Probably not a good option if you want to keep from damaging the paint and working surface.......just my two cents.
