Well, tools shouldn't be a problem. Think a new lens cover is about £20...

What kind of special tool would you recommend though 5four?

Oh wow, I'm sorry to hear about that. Simply forgetting to align the white dots, seems like it shouldn't have created such a situation. Poor engineering foresight on part of Ricoh?

on a machine like this (scroll a bit down)

I made a picture of my gx 200 without the lenscover so you can see where you should cut without hitting the slots of your camera itself. the arrows are the places where i would cut, but thats up to you.

don't make your incisions completely trough, but just deep enough to crack them open with a screwdriver, this is to prevent that you hit your camera while cutting.

Good luck!

5four, thanks again for information.

The stuff which you so kindly recommended me to help me out of this situation is too expensive, though.

Ebay here I come :(
