tools needed for clean cut:
reamer for holes or drill bit
a good pair of body clippers
a dremel with grinding wheel(this gets rid of the rough edges to help prevent cracking of the body especially in the window cut outs)
and a little patience after doing it a few times it becomes very easy and almost like second nature but at first it can be a little difficult(or at least it feels that way)

I use one of these, my big ass hands dont deal with the little lexan scissors so well. you can get a rough cut with this and then smooth it out with a sanding drum.

FYI, when using it, it makes what might be the most horrible noise ever, LOL
