use a so called dremel tool or whatever u call it. i used a small die grinder i have at work and just ground them off. works without any problems, just watch u dont dig in

and if ur putting the lower eyelids then u dont have to grind the lower ones off.

The eyelid should cover the nipple anyways, so I just melted the nipple with a lighter then picked it off with a screw driver. It took less than a minute.

I ground down mine with circular drill file but I left a little bit of the nipple intact, approx 1/16th of an inch. Heard you need that if you want to align the headlamps.
