Smile New ignition assembly installed!!!

I installed a new ignition assembly and cylinder yesterday. Thanks to great advice for some of you guys and a little research in the archives it went smooth as silk. 2 hours start to finish (fast for a ten thumbed monkey) the only real PITA was getting the kick plate back where it is supposed to be. Does anybody know how much money I saved installing it myself? I would like to know so I can use the "with the money I saved on that I am going to buy _____________" on the wife.

Just got my 300TD back from my mechanic, the car was driven away while running in my driveway, located without the key in it,cylinder and steering frozen, My cost was $200.00 to have it drilled out (guess it is like drilling a safe) new tumbler installed, I jhear the real cost for all of this is $400.00,dont knoe if this answers your question, dealer qouted me $300.00 to install new tumbler without all of my issues.

That sounds like a good deal, just the tumbler costs almost $100 from the dealer, and drilling it is probably a real PITA for the shop.
