Default TGV Delete - Flapper stuck

I'm in the process of doing a TGV delete on my 2002 WRX. I've gotten the TGV's off and drilled out the screws that hold the flappers to the bars in the assembly but it's almost like the flaps are glued to the bar. I can't remove them. Is there a step I'm missing or do I just need to bang on it until it comes off? I'm applying a pretty considerable amount of force as it is and I'll I've gotten is two pretty bent flappers in the one TGV with no screws.

Maybe not all of the screw was drilled out. Maybe you just have hollow screws now. I don't ever drill out the screws. I grind down the bottom of the screw until it is flush with the rod. Then the screws come right out with a screwdriver.

Well, it's a little late for that I Actually have the screws sitting in my hand, it pushed them out completely as I drilled them. Three of them complete screws, and one is sort of in pieces.

I read through that entire thread. Yes, I know it doesn't say to drill them out. It was the only option I had. My dremel couldn't reach the ends of the screw to nibble them off. In any case, is there anybody who has encountered this phenomenon?
