Haven't been able to work on it again yet. On the road.
Thanks for the light modulator tip. Good point. I will have to look into it.
How exactly would vice grips + hammer work? I did try vice grips... kind of shredded/pinched the lip of the baffle. If I could get it out more than 1/8 inch I would be able to get a better grip with the vice grips, but that's about all I can get it out. What would I do with the hammer?
