Changing trem in Jem style project.

Hello all I've been working on a Jem style project. Ive now started working on replacing the trem. I chose a Floyd Lowpro. The body I purchased has the trem mounting stud grommets of some other trem and they have to be changed. Does Anyone know of a trick for pulling those grommets so I can install the correct ones? Your time in advance appreciated.

If the grommets are hollow through like a cylinder, you can put a small screw inside into the wood on the body, wind it in about halfway, then screw the trem stud in, and once it hits the screw and starts to lock solid, it should then start to lift the grommet out as it's turned.

Re: Changing trem in Jem style project guitarist

Hey guys so now I'm at the point of using the dremmel tool and take out the extra wood. Is there a number of distance from the trem to the body of the guitar for how much wood needs to be removed? I can find a measurement.

Thanks
