    Put something underneath that will let the pin puncture it as you tap it out. Look for the smooth end of the pin, as this is the end they did not tap in at the factory. Try to hold the piece steady, and tap away. Get the pin out enough so that a pair of needle nose pliers will grab a hold of it, and pull it the rest of the way out.

    I have tried all these methods and I still can't get my pins out of Alt Rumble. Looks like it's going to be all tape for this one.

    Guess it depends which pins you're aiming for. Mine came out ok, just follow the guides already mentioned. Make sure you're using a blunt nail that's skinnier than the pin and don't force it. If the side you're trying won't go after a bit, you're probably hitting the wrong one. I did that on one of the feet pins, thankfully it didn't bust anything up too badly.

    It's not always foolproof but some of the pins have a smaller rounded tip on the end that was put thru the tf. They do that on some to make it go easier, kind of like a nail. I still have pins that I can't figure out either way but I have learned a technique that helps and I think Ops and LOBO both mention it and it's that if it seems way to difficult to come out, then you are probably going the wrong way. Even if you can get the pin to move just little bit, you can see if the rounded part is smooth or rough and you want to pull away from the tf using the rough end.
