The pin you are referring to is called a "Roll Pin". This style of pin can be removed by tapping it out with a small hammer and drift punch with a slightly smaller diameter. The plastic lens in your hatch is not Lexan, it is Acrylic. The frame itself is made of aluminum, and is quite easy to sand and remove the old paint. When you are ready to repaint, make sure your primer is rated for aluminum. Automotive supply stores usually carry roll pins in various materials and sizes, if you don't feel like spending what Bowmar is asking, or don't want to wait.
