Thanks. I appreciate the help, but… The pin seems to be the toughest item to remove. You didn’t get that far.

This worked for the pin. I’m guessing it pushes through the front of the body behind the screen. I didn’t get that far. It for sure will not pull out of the back. I cut the pin and pulled it out (yes it did damage the plastic). I cut a small nail (brad) the put it through the cover and placed the brad in where the old pin was and placed a bit of super glue on it to hold it in place (don’t get any on the new cover). In a while I will assemble the camera and add more super glue. Yes, the super glue will be visible, but it will take some searching to find it and will look much better that a tie-wrap or tape. I hope that helps.
