Scrap on hand, 30 sec of cutting, 2 min of grinding, 30 sec of welding.. Less cost in time and gas then it would have cost me to run into town to autozone.

The nice aluminum Low Profile Race jack was the expensive part at $150, but I'll use the heck out of it. The steel one was 105 lbs and this one is 43 lbs.

Don't bother with a 'special tool'. Get yourself a big pair of channel pliers. Open those suckers up large enough to grasp the piston and screw it in as far as you need to. Done! Installed rear cross-drilled rotors in 1.2 hours in the rear.

Really? Never would have guessed

To each his own,, but umm channel locks are for plumbing repairs and stuck in the woods, no way to walk out, last ditch chance to get it fixed tools.
If you can afford to buy a GT500, and not the proper tool... or at least one that will not chew up the caliper piston.. perhaps having others work on your car, or buying a car you can afford is a better idea.
NOTE: Channel locks chewing on the caliper piston trying to reset it, is not a great idea... in my opinion.... to each his own, do what works for you.
