what the f**k!!!!!
$56
shop around I didn't but trade tools had a few betwen 10-20 dollars, I went the $18 one I think, could've done with a second but basically just made it through the job.
could be a better design for $56 but look into it as the supposedly better quality one I got was $18-20
It was over a year ago, but it was the sort of money your talking.

f**k easy enough fix.
check it out may be easier to just pull and panel beat depending on the your welding skills, hard to say for sure though.

Also I have a headlight assembly if you need one still.

That was for a bit, and some extra cutters, bit alone was about $25 iirc.

There's only really 2 places to get tools down my way, so not much shopping around to be done, not worth driving 30mins to get it $10 or even $15 cheaper. Petrol & time is worth more than that!

Cheers

I know on one car I had previously I replaced the Rad supp. panel, but I only replaced 1/2 of it leaving the other side unmolested to try to save a bit of work. :D the car had similiar damage too

ah, so that includes a few extra cutters, yeah, fair enough,
the cutters aren't free by any means, and if it's only like $25 on it's own then, as I said, it was about a year ago, just seemed high, for just the drill bit on it's own so I was starting to think you may have even been looking at a standard sort of spot weld drill. as you can pay good money for them. an extreme example but still

where as this is what I'm talking about, and sounds like what your getting. except I would buy from your tool place not ebay, hehe.

this on the other hand is interesting, be a nice toy, but see it'd be one of those, that it'd be handy, but never work out practical.
one of those great idea nice tools you never use.

I like playing with tools what can I say.
