Wet sanding after cutting with a fine tooth blade on a table saw works, but is a bit labour intensive. There are special drill bits available for drilling plastics, they are worthwhile picking up, also be sure to drill the hole oversize for the fasteners so that you don't stress the hole during expanion/contraction.

We have also had good luck with Dow Corning 795.
