I really didn't have any trouble getting my pins out. I drove them out with a punch, installing the new ones I used a  Kant twist clamp to press them back in,

Thanks for the input. I'll modify a c-clamp and see if I can get a few to budge. If not it looks like I'll be removing the gauges sooner than expected.
Wouldn't want to subject them to any vibrations since they were really spendy.
Im sure once I started air impact, some wood will fall apart into pieces. :o

In prep to actually get started on  the '26 roadster I've been looking back through this thread. Too bad some of the links no longer work. Two friends are pushing me and I need it. One is really a good metal fabricator and welder and I will be pushed to go all metal. We have another friend who runs a top notch custom cabinet shop. He is also a car guy. He has a wood CNC machine and has shown interest in the past. I'm working on him to work with us to save as much wood as we can and fill in with steel where needed. One problem now is that these guys want to move fast and since the project is moved to one of their shops I can not drag it out too long. We all know steel would be faster. Decisions- Decisions!  :( I'm hanging on to many of your suggestions. Maybe I ca fool them into putting the wood body frame together so we can better make a steel one.  ::) We are making some major frame changes so a solid body to build from is necessary.
