OT, I drilled my old e30 bumper shocks totally oblivious as to what could happen, without any protection, in the open, I got lucky.

Just get euros people.
I'm not usually that guy, but when I watch my friends do an oil change with only a jack I need to slap some knowledge into them. Not trying to watch people get crushed by a civic.

Did this on the '02 a month or two ago. Used a fair sized piece of cardboard, stuck the drill bit through that and didn't get hit at all.

Safety glasses were on nonetheless.

Just did my rear bumper.
1/4 inch bit cut open one end of plastic mike container. put shock in rage around the open end and drilled thru the plastic into the shock body a little spray then. Then i punched in the body actually pretty anti climatic. but man does that stuff stink.
Did it in a garage the door wide open.
glasses and a 3m dust mask still don't breath deep
hit it and quite for a bit
good luck
