Please don't ask why, lol. If I can do it, there will be a thread about why. Can I cut a hole, maybe a little longer than a credit card, same width, where I circled in the door step/jam metal. Just in the top layer under the plastic trim
It's not for hiding drugs though that would be a great spot.
My guess is that it would compromise the rigidity and would therefore be a bad idea, but if not that would be really, really cool.
Edit: Than again, this is just sill panel, right? Frame is underneath...
Structurally no, you wouldn't have anything to worry about. If you are worried about it possibly bending the metal by accidentally stepping on it or something you could put a doubler to go around the hole. Roughly a half inch from the edge of the hole outward would do the trick if you use 1/8th inch aluminum. In order for it to brace properly you should weld it I . Tig would look the best unless you are an experienced mig welder.
