It is double walled. Only a small ring holding the strut bearing in place is
where a large space between the sheetmetal exists. Where you are going to be
drilling there is no space. You can actually see the spot welds under the
paint. That's where you can be sure there is no space between the sheetmetal.

I got the fasteners in there just by putting the car on blocks and letting the
strut hang (no need to drop it).There should be enough space for you to put a
socket on the bolt.
