Get your self a good high speed steel bit, put some tape over the location of the hole to prevent slips and cracks and drill away.
Don't use to much pressure as the heat could discolor the paint. paint and seal bare metal and fit plate.

most important thing is to have a good sharp drill bit..

I did the same as Multibob recommends, an extra thing that I did was to tape grid paper around the fender and find the exact spot to drill, I left the grid paper on and taped the whole area off in case the drill slipped, it went very smooth just a little scary at first.

I'd center punch with a spring loaded punch and drill a small pilot hole to keep the larger bit from wandering and definetly paint the bare metal.
