I use a 3/4" blade in a dremel oscillating tool.

Abrasive disc in the die grinder is what I used. I've used it to widen the rear window opening when I installed a Scamp window in our Uhaul, and to cut an opening for a new power converter, a storage opening, and increase the opening size where the ice box was to replace it with a dorm fridge. It's a thin disc, worked good, but made a lot of dust. For the corners of the openings I used a toothed hole saw to get a round corner.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS

Wear a respirator when working with fiberglass. You do not want to inhale those dust particles!

I installed an air conditionned and did the holes with a small jig saw with a metal blade. Worked great.
