    I just purchased some new GM door pins and bushings from the dealer for my '88 K5 and I'm in the process of trying to cut through the old pins in order to remove them. I know some of you guys said that you cut through these pins without unbolting the hinges. What did you use to do this? I'm trying to use one of those little hacksaws where just the blade sticks out of the end and I'm almost getting nowhere on the bottom pin :mad: . It seems like there isn't nearly enough room to cut these without unbolting the door from the hinges. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks so much, guys. :thumb:

    I've unbolted doors on my 77 and I spray painted white where they bolted to the door as a guide to line them back up when I put them on. And then I got another set of doors and you could see the color difference on them where to line them up, made it easier to rebuilt them to the hinges. Seems like it would be easier to me to replace the pins with out the doors hanging.
