Cutting MUD pod

Can you guys tell me what's the best way to cut a rectangular hole in the mud pod? I'm installing the six gang switch setup and wanted to get your opinions before I start boring away... Thanks all

No it is is pretty pliable...I kept it inside the house (actually did the work at the kitchen table!) to keep it warmer. As with everything, remember that you can always cut more but can't put it back!
