    DIY build - Help with cutting holes in steel wall panel

    We bought our the basic kit from Royal but chose to get our equipment from other sources and saved a bunch. However, because we didn't buy our lights from Royal, they wouldn't send us "light" panels. Now we need to determine what's the best way to cut the hole for the light niches. We've got the template that came with the niche. Have any of you had to do this? Any tips and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I never order light cut outs with my kits. Gives you more freedom on light placement. The appropriate sized hole saw or a jig saw will do the trick.
