You have to do this with many battery cutoffs switches, including the one that RLS sells (believe it's the same marine quality switch). It took me much longer to drill through though. Weak cordless drill.

NCI/RLS battery hold down is fantastic. Really simple and elegant solution. I don't know how Lotus thinks the stock setup is appropriate for a car that sees 1G cornering.

In all fairness, they only needed to design it to be slightly stronger than the rear toe links.
