Has anybody else run into this problem with the HRAP3 while modding?

Okay, so I’m trying to mod my HRAP3, including adding art. However, once I got pretty much everything off, I noticed this:

… No screws. It looks like it’s been soldered or welded on. What the hell.

So does anybody have any ideas how to get this stick off? Heck, once I do, how am I gonna get it back on?

EDIT: I’m stupid. I think I found out how. =P

You don’t take the mounting plate off of the top panel. It’s welded on and supposed to stay. Just unscrew the stick from the mounting plate if you want to remove it.

Yeah, I’m stupid. =P

Mounting Bracket.
