How do I perform the "trem post mod"?

I just bought my JEM7VWH yesterday, and I changed the strings right away, thats when I remembered about the pivot posts not having the locking stud in the middle of them. And while I had the strings off, I then realised how loose they were! Wow, they move quite a bit. So my question is, how hard is the mod? Can I pull the anchors out without chipping, or catching some of the paint on the edges? Are the new studs, and the old studs the same threads? Anyone? Rich?
