I dont have the holes in the trunk already drilled. My question is, I called a few body shops and some were saying that after the holes are drilled the entire trunk needs to be painted again. Is this true?

No, just start the hole through the bottom then go to the outside and drill down to keep cracking to a min. Helps to put tape over where you are going to drill. Do quick thrust down through the hood then back out, use a file to clean up the sharp edges and you should be fine. My paint cracked a bit around the hole... just a dab of touchup and it soaked in and even around the hole giving it back its blue :)
