Hi T2 I guess u mean jail bars. Drill them as they are there to stay :D just measure twice and drill once! remember use a template and that the top bar is shorter on the corner sections. (silicon is messy and wont give a firm fix, although a good quality glue will fix better but probably damage paint when jail bars are removed, which I doubt they will ). good luck :D
You have a very 8) bus, lets see some more pics... please
