who has a jigsaw with a metal cutting blade and a garage?

willing to trade a case of beer for anyone that wants to help me install these lebaron hood vents on my jeep this sunday. i can get a hold of a jig saw, but have no blades for cutting metal. i was going to use my 4.5" angle grinder to do the cuts but ive read a jig saw works better.

so whos up to help me cut some holes in a shiny XJ hood?

I'll help you cut the hole in exchange for the hoodvents.

You can pick up a pack of fine toothed metal cutting jigsaw blades for the cost of that case of beer.

So Jawa, you must either drink really cheap beer or buy really pricey blades.
5 pack of 36 tooth Bosch blades for $7 @ The Depot.

Jawa use a lot of tape on your hood and then mark the cutting lines those saws will mess up the paint

Yep, I used lots of tape when I did my vents and everything came out well.

Haha, I knew I should have said "for LESS than the cost of that case of beer"!

honestly? no one wants to donate their warm garage on sunday to cut some holes in the hood of an XJ? i got a jig saw today with some metal blades, an angle grinder, cutting discs, and everything we will need... and FREE BEER FOR YOU! i live in an apartment and dont have an extension cord long enough to reach the parking lot. if i did, i would be doing it here!

Maybe you can bring it down to Landsdowne where all the hair shaving will be occurring for the St. Baldricks Foundation..... I think that's where most of the guys are gonna be that aren't 'wheeling up at Illinois Gulch that day....... Im sure the restaurant won't mind you making your own buzzing noises next to the hair trimmers!
