I call this the panel method. through complex manipulation of vertices an lines. you can manipulate a surface property to get what ever geometric shape you desire. if you want I can post an example of my findings. this panel method of mine has helped me out greatly. without it I dont think I would have gotten very far.
The problem with the hole tool applied to a non round surface (square, rectangle ...) is that you end up with a non round hole ... Of course you can then add some vertices, move them a bit trying to have a good rounded hole, but it becomes much more complex than the 2 methods I was talking about.

Feel free to post you panel method here.

Ok post it when you can, maybe in a new "WIP" or "How-to" thread if you don't mind.

Just because I'm proud of it
Rendered into PovRay with a chrome material and a bump map.



I think the car will be finished in max 2 weeks now.
I'm working a lot for a better subdivised shape (and materials boundaries respect).

Also I'm learning more and more things about how to use Povray ...

Cheers.

New ToDo list :

- gazoline cap, windscreen wipers, red light at the top back of the car, car's logo and also (why not) name ...
- renders

Modeling a car is for sure a lot of work
