This guy didn't drill it for a bulkhead but dremmelled holes in the side of his tank for and external box... lots of pics and he describes how it was done... should be able to be done for a bulkhead too... I'm certain there is a thread somewhere here on doing it for bulkheads-- this thread should cover the basics of dremeling a tank-- just trace out the bulkhead and I would drill holes on your traced line and then connect the dots.

here is the thread...

yes they sell diamond edge dremel bits.. look at HD, Lowes, Menards, Ace, Sears, etc...
