Disassembling Shimano sl-1050 downtube shifters

I'm trying to figure out how to take these 105 shifters apart, but can't seem to figure it out. Anyone have any suggestions?

You can not take them apart. Do you have a problem with them?

They are not "servicable" and there are only three parts, the lever containing the friction and/or indexing mechanism, the base plate and the mounting bolt. As asked above, why do you want to disassemble them?

They're pretty scratched up, I'll be removing anodizing on a few parts and polishing them, i was hoping to do it to these shifters also.

I noticed the same thing when I opened up one of my RX100 shifters the other day. I was disappointed that I couldn't take them completely to pieces like others I've seen (is it a friction/index thing?), but I guess I'll deal with that as long as they work.
