Would someone mind advising me as to the best way to separate a secure ball joint from the joint housing? I'm trying to remove one of Thundertron's legs and unaided coaxing won't do the trick, because the ball is secured inside the housing by a one-way tab. I'm thinking that a hair dryer, or boiling water might be the best options, but I'm trying to avoid warping of plastic and accidental paint removal. With all the modding experts here, I'm guessing someone knows the best way to go about this. Any thoughts?
