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.
Hey, that'* not too shabby! I have hacksaw blades sitting on my dresser begging to be used... Can't find the handle for the life of me
You got a roll of tape? (wrap one end of the blade, depending on if you want to push to cut, or pull) Or the intelligence neccessary to hold the blade w/o cutting yourself??

Oh, crap.. You sound like my kids.... Well, my daughter only now. While it is the "right" color, I kinda doubt the Air Force would let my son dye his hair blue....
