Make sure the drill cuts all the time. If you let it rub without cuttiing the steel will work harden and make the job very difficult indeed.

Ah! 'Free's ' link says that too.

I had to drill some holes to fit some new nave lights, top tip don't think of using an old drill bit, go to b and q and buy a new one or two specifically for stainless steel, it will make a big difference to how easy it will be to drill.
