The panels are nailed into the posts. Can anyone
recommend a method for removing the panels without
damaging them. I have tried running a loose hacksaw

down the sides of the panels but the panels are such a
tight fit that the blade jams and buckles. My jigsaw

not have long enough blades and if it did they would
probably jam and buckle also.



Aren't the heads of the nails accessible?

Stuart, the heads of the nails are driven flush into the
softwood edge strips.

Centre-punch the heads and drill 'em off, then use a small punch to drive
them in.

They're probably a bit rusted to the panels.
