Hi folks - I have what I believe is a 1968 boot lid which is the mk1 style / dual skinned (not the open webbing type) that is ready for paint. Before I do, I would like to also mount my rear mounted Lucas reverse lamp which I currently run on Mk4 boot. It would require drilling a hole in both layers and possibly using a grommet to cover the hole on the interior side. Any reaction to that? Am I stepping onto a sacrilegious landmine for cutting into this lid? Not sure how rare or in demand these things are.

It’s your car, drill the holes if you want. Some people may moan, but it’s not an irrepairable thing and there are still Mk2 lids around.

Never said that. There will be a hole in the second skin where the wires enter the boot space. Use that hole.
I think he means to actually tighten the nut up as he would need a much larger hole directly above the boot lamp to tighten it up
