    Ford V8 door hinge pins.

    I'm trying to get the top hinge pins out on the doors of my '35 Ford and replace with new pins/wing mirrors. Anybody on here done this?
    I've tried penetrating oil, using the special G clamp type tool and a hammer and had no luck so far.
    I'm thinking I might try drilling it out.

    Any suggestions welcome. Cheers.

    Removed them from my '36 Coupe a real arse of a job, soaked them and beat them out with a drift. The running boards need to be off to get to lower hinge.

    Thanks for the reply hotrodboy. You're right, it's a real arse of a job. But after a few days of soaking and using the G clamp tool (just about man enough for the job) plus several whacks with the hammer they finally shifted. A bit of touching up to do and it's job done.
