Sorry to hear you ran into some problems getting the lip open. I don't know if the sheet metal used on the later Cubs (a '75, like yours) and the earlier Cubs (a '47, like mine) were different gauges or not.
All I used was what you were using; or similar. Bascially, anything that I could use as a tool to pry the lip open. Don't know if I'd use heat or not.
Wish you success.

forgot to mention the vice grips wont work to open the lip, just to close it up.

Great job! Congratulations! Also some improved techniques over mine that would give better results. Couldn't talk my wife into helping - that is definitely a big help having an extra set of hands! Dusty B
