Default T-Rex 600 phasing pin removal methods?

Hey all,

Finally got the flybarless bug and picked up a Mikado flybarless conversion kit for my T-Rex 600. Wondering if anyone's got any preferred methods for removing the phasing pins from the original head. My first idea was to pull them out with a vise-grip, but they're in there pretty good. Now I'm stuck at a toss-up between cutting them off with a dremel or heating the head with a heat gun and trying the vise-grip method again.

Would heating damage the anodizing? I'm really leaning towards the dremel idea, but worry about my hand slipping so I thought I'd look at other options first.

Any ideas?
