Ignition Lock

Hello, need help with installing a new ignition lock on a 1976 280z. Actually, it's getting the old one off the steering column. Seems that two phillip head screws came off easy, but was wondering how do I get off the other two screws, if they are indeed screws. They have no visible head or anything to grab onto. Do I have to drill them out? I attached a photo. Thanks.

Yup. I cut a slot into them with a dremel so I can remove them with a flat blade screw driver. But if you can get a drill bit to stay on point, you could do it that way. And yes, they are screws. They are "anti-tamper" type so the head breaks off when they are tightened.

Thank you, I will give the dremel tool a shot. It seems very doable.
