On thin metal, try a 'leather punch'. The kind of tool that has a
'star' wheel at the end. Squeeze the tool on the metal, then 'rotate'
the metal around what whould be the axis of the 'spike' on the
tool. This should scar the metal. Then you can center punch the
'circle' and drill it out carefully.
