    I'm in the process of restoring a G1 Megatron and need some help. I stripped the already badly worn chrome plating and base coat on some parts and will be sending them to Chrome Tech USA. I just need to remove the capped pin on the die-cast hinge on Megs barrel. I already tried a soldering iron and it didn't work. Is there any other method on removing this pin?

    Already saw that vid and tried it myself and it didn't work. I even asked the guy if it would work and he didn't have a G1 Megatron to test it on.
