just make sure its where you want it and it does foul any part under the bonnet, but remember once you drill a hole it will be there forever (until ofcourse you want it repaired) just out of curiosity what emblem is it???

cheers

Yeah Twirky is on the money, get one of those flat ones you find on an FBT or a Fairlane from the BA/BF range.

the only thing i could think about is mabye some problems with the paint chipping as you go to drill the hole, or mabye the possibility of rust forming around the hole?
to be safe, i'd use a sealer after you've drilled the hole...
