It was very easy to do. I just used a 1/4in drill bit. Aluminum needs to be 2mm or thicker though.

I see. I bought 2mm thick aluminium pieces for the case.

I am thinking about grabbing the button head M4 screws and if not then I definitely will countersink the top and back panel mounting holes.

I definitely think countersunk is the way to go. It IMO looks a lot cleaner and really only takes a couple of seconds to do.

Still working on the backplate. A few WIP macros.

And now back to modding. Unfortunately I am still working on cleaning up the metalwork. Everything I think I am getting close to being done I find myself being unhappy w/ something else. After finishing this round of sanding I should in theory only need one more round of patching.
