outdoor outlet, aluminum siding
whats the easiest way to install an outdoor outlet on a house with aluminium siding. doesn't seem that easy to remove and cut it without bending it up. can i just mount it flat against the house and drill a small hole for the wire? can i screw right through the siding into the sheathing and mount a box flat against the siding?

Sure can! But for outside, the box has to be the correct type, of course.

I cut the siding using a razor knife.
