I started removing the 4 larger tabs on the bottom of the 2 arms using a hacksaw. The three smaller nubs at the top I removed with my dremel and a small cutoff wheel.
Couple photos and info on the process of shaving your y-pipe
Easily stabilize your your body, back, and hands against the surface of the tub, preventing any slippage. Soak in warm water before you begin shaving to help soften the hair and skin. Rinse your razor quickly and easily in the bathwater. Apply your favorite shower gel to moisturize the area when you're done. Clean up quickly—just drain the tub. If you're using an electric body groomer, then laying on a bed or sitting on the bathroom floor with a towel underneath are good options.
