I am hoping this will suffice until next year when funds are hopefully availible to install line control carrs.

Yep - did it on mine all good but You want to make sure that you do not drill through the "T"...(if you do that effects the structure). use one of those drill stoppers that keep the depth constant on the drill bit. Start them with a small bit, a medium and then the right size bit - as those tracks are pretty tough. Depth of the holes are pretty shallow but its a time consuming process...
