Installing Tweeters behind the A pillars

Ok here is part 2 of the stereo install saga, I finally got my AU Ghia A pillar trims (thanks to you guys for part numbers and telling me how cheap they are :) ) (no thanks to the christmas break which is why it took so long)

So I got home last night and took the old ones off to see how much tweeter room I had, and there is enough but I need to drill some holes in the A pillar, is there anything inside the A pillars that I don't want to drill in to? This is down at the bottom of the pillar where the tweeter grilles are.

Thanks in advance

For a tweeter wouldnt you be able to drill/screw into the plastic to hold the tweeter base on?
Tweeters dont need THAT much of a solid base to sound good, like 6x9s etc..

I wouldnt mount the tweeters into the A-pillar metal...is this what you have seen b4?? Or just what u have heard?

it seemed the only thing to attach it to, there is a metal plate that comes with the tweeters that haves to be attached. The alpine box doesn't come that many mounting suggestions but I am open to new ones.

If it's any help, the factory tweeters are mounted as follows:

The tweeter mounts to a (rectangular) metal plate (which is shaped on an angle to point the tweeters slightly back into the cain more). the metal plate protrudes from two sides of the tweeter, the bottom side just has a 'tongue' (spelling? - y'know - the thing in ya mouth :) which 'slots' into a retangular hole/slot near the bottom of the A-pillar (in the actual metal - yours may have this already?). The top of the metal bracket has a hole (which lines up with a hole in the A-pillar, so I guess it's OK to drill?) where it is riveted in place.
