van den Hul MC-10 - has anyone removed the body?

I have an vdH MC-10 that is essentially a spare cartridge. Nice sounding with great tracking. I've been trying to sell it on ebay, but if it does not sell, have been considering tweaking it.

The body seems to be held on with screws. Does anyone here have experiece with making it "nude" - ie removing the body. I remember that was the hot tweak 15 years ago for a Sumiko Blue Point, and am wondering if its possible with this one, and whether it will have any performance benefits.

Thanks in advance. Samir.
It can be done quite easily, but I don't think you would gain much sonic improvement and you would risk damaging the fine wires that connect the coils to the rear pins.
