Default modifying interior for coilover adjustment?

I want to cut holes through the rear interior to adjust my rear coilovers, has anyone done this or have pics? between autocross, track days, and daily driving, I change them alot and pulling them off to adjust is just getting rediculous so I've left them stiff as H*** and its getting old.

If no ones done this, i'll figure something out and write it up!

our Cross coils have the flexible Damper Knob extensions on them and we just need to open the small panels in the rear and turn the knob. Too easy. The only pic I could find is on these Megans at the very bottom of the page:

I could take you pictures of about where you need to drill from the top if that helps.

i wouldn't think you would have to drill any holes with the megan coilovers (and any coilover set with the same style extension)

Actually, now that I think about it, you do, but it is behind the panel and then the extension goes up through the hole and is then accessed via the panel. I know someone on NAM or here did a write-up years a go with some BC's
