Default Cleared corners on a 99 w/o Dremel?

Anybody bake theirs instead of using a Dremel? I'm not going to go buy one just to do this, but I really would like to... Any other tips?

I cleared my originals using a hacksaw blade wrapped with tape for a handle. As long as your careful not to scratch the silver reflective stuff, it works like a charm!

Nope. I started at the "pointy" corner. Cut there until I had a hole big enough to insert the blade, then wnt around the fixture from there. Maybe 10 minutes each.
