Cutting into dash?

Has anyone here cut into the dash? I'm trying to add USB ports using the existing spot for the EATC sensor, but the dash almost looks like it has metal material on the back. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Update: It took an xacto knife and a lot of muscle, but I managed to expand the EATC sensor vent wide enough to fit the USB ports. I'll post pics with wiring and the parts I used if anyone wants to do this mod also.
