Ok, so I got these new fancy new fiberglass body panels- trying to get the old damaged ones off my 92 k2500 (with ifs). So.... please dont tell me I have to DRILL EVERY FARKIN LAST TACK WELD. Is there an easier way?

Is there a faster way? this will take me at least a week to drill them all out!!!

Ok, so I got one of those special spot weld drillers- the one with the spring loaded centering pin. NOticed I needed to use a center punch to make the centering pin stay in place.

How do I get to the side of the spot welds? There's some right under the hood hindge, and some around the door. Do I have to remove the door to get to these welds? I know I have to remove the grill to get to those welds.
