ahh... yeah, once i actually got in there and looked at things i got a much better idea of what you were talking about.
heh, interesting side note to this:

*the setting: 9am, warm summer morning, a blue focus is parked on a busy street 2 blocks from the police station... not in a driveway or a garage*
Focus Interior: a guy in sun glasses and a raddy T-Shirt is drilling out the ignition
many people walk by, drive by, ride bikes by in the 30 min of intense drilling...

not 1 person even took a second glance.
americans are so leze fair.

I didn't have any problems with the whole drilling proceidure though... the Skill drill bit set that I have and ye'ol firestorm 18v cordless drill ate through the lock pretty easily.
Heh, had a few wtf? moments when smoke started to come out the key hole... first time i've gotten those bits hot enough to burn stuff. ;)
