Tail Motor Mount Removal

I ordered an intergrated tail fin and motor mount to go to a direct tail rotor mount for my HB FP. The stock mount seems like its welded to the tail boom, I can't get it to budge to take it off. Anyone have any tricks on getting this off short of destroying it?

You can either soak the tail end in nail polish remover, or dremel a few slits in the side of the mount. If you choose to soak it, remove it from the solution every few minutes to wiggle it back and forth to break the glue bond. If you use a dremel, cut the two slits 180 degrees from each other, then wiggle the mount, possibly applying CA solvent as you go.
