Here is the ugly hole I managed to make with a not-so-great hole saw and a hand drill.

It would’ve been better to use a press and clamp the panel to something, but, unfortunately, I don’t own that stuff. At least the lip of the USB charger would hide the mess.

I made my own sub-harness to connect the USB charger to my car.
