Default Broken Cowl Hinge Pin

Help. We have an RV7 tipup. The "Handle" portion of our top, rear cowl piano hinge pin broke off with the pin installed. This is the long pin that runs along the top of the firewall. it is fully installed right now and broke flush with the entry hinge point.

The only idea I have right now is to maybe get a Drimmel tool with a cutoff wheel and trim off the first couple of hinges in hopes of grabbing the wire with a pair of pliers, but I'd rather not make things worse.

Any other ideas on how to get it out?

The clouds beckon. I must go fly.
