What I ended up doing, after tearing up many pans, was go to your local Home Depot, Lowes, or whatever big hardware store chain you have near you and get 1" to 1-1/4" (whichever best fits your needs) hole saw bit. The one I got was a Black & Decker 1-1/4" Complete Hole Saw (#79-363) found in the power tool area. It looks like a regular drill bit in the center with a circular bit around that. Just be sure when using it that you have wood under your pan for support, and go slow. As long as you take you time, it should work just fine (especially if your pan is made of steel instead of aluminum like mine turned out to be.)

thanks for your help, i just blew all my dremel heads! lol
it looks ok... i think its a little off, but its not too bad. i did some pretty good ways of hiding it. i hope before the end of the week to have my bumper set, and a gun sketched out. i cant wait, im almost done.

unfortunately, i have two more custom gb things to make, a trap pack and a slime blower.
yimeny.

Incase you haven't cut your holes yet, here are pictures of what not to use, and what to use. You will see that I learned the hard way and now have to sand circles out of Bondo

Dont use a dremel, those things suck as drills! Dremels are most for detail work, get a hand drill and a boring bit. If you can, get to a drill press that has a vice to hold the cakepan. A hand drill would do nice if you can hold it straight. Just my two copper coins smile
