Need Help with tweeter mounting in grills

I need to know what to use to make this happen. Here is what Iím trying to do:

I have HOG TUNES metal mesh grills for RG RM 2015+, my ride is a 2018 Road Glide Special.

I NEED to know what to get to drill a 1-3/4Ē hole in the grills to mount a tweeter. Specifically the Hertz Mille ML 280.3 Legend Tweeter into the grill.

can someone guild / talk me through it and or have pics or a video of how it can be done without damage to the grills?

Want to do something like this has been done in this pic

A very sharp pair of wire snippers. Male your circle with a pencil and snip the circle out. No need to buy special drill bit. Mounted these with nothing but a small pair of wire snippers (dykes). Donít get stuck on trying to make a circle of perfection. As long as the cut is covered by the tweeter mount it makes no difference what it looks like.

Itís total depth co corned about vs position like it to the upper sides up or dead center of speaker or dead center of grill those are the 3 places thinking of.

Is there an audio shop in your area for car or bike? If you're worried about tearing stuff up they'll do it in about 10 seconds and shouldn't cost much.

Freedom isn't free, remember to thank a vet.
2018 CVO RG lava orange, 117 Stage 3, 14" F47 and a few chrome extras. Boom crap gone.
2016 RG Special Cosmic Blue, 120ST with Dragos 2:1 and TTS tuner, FBI drop seat kit and JNR air ride. Stock audio long gone.

Sorta, but also worried about placement to woofer as far as clearance goes and shown in pics of dementions ect and morning hardware adding to depth.
