I used the Blair spotweld cutter with good results. I see the new model looks even more durable.
Take your time with the cutter, smooth and don't rush the cut. Use a punch to keep the bit from walking. Use WD-40 while cutting.

They worked well for me.

I also like/used the Blair when I did my cowl. You will break the cutter if you 'rock' the bit side to side. You MUST take your time. But they worked great for me. For any spot welds that I have to remove...that's what I'll always grab for. Unless you don't car about the piece behind it...then a 3/8 drill Bullet bit works great!

As a side note, use some self-tapping screws around the edge of the cowl. This will aid greatly in realigning everything come assembly time.

Check out the cutter that NAPA sells. Easy to get locally, cheaper than some and if you break it you can flip the head and use the other side. Worked better for me than the Eastwood cutter did.
