Default Saving vintage handgrips when removing them

I'm trying to install brake control levers on a vintage Schwinn bike. I've been trying to get the handgrips off without destroying them so I can put them back on, but they are fighting me big time. I see people sell used grips on e-bay so there must be a way.

I hope that someone has something. I've tryed heating them with hot water, I taped a bathroom tissue roll on a hairdryer so I could get the heat to the whole thing all at once. Great idea, but it didn't work.

Hate it that a handgrip is smarter than me.
