Like my other mods from cameras with fixed lenses the most important ingredients are Sugru rubber clay/sealant and pliers. First, the pliers are used to remove the shutter mechanism. In all instances I've had to destroy the mechanisms in order to free the lens and the other important parts.
Feel free to comment. Or buy the lens from my Etsy shop!
I also have a group on Facebook called Analog Photography & Camera Modding and DIY!
