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.


I could try that but I don't have a lot of confidence that
I could drive a rusted-in nail 1" into a post just by
using a small punch.

Should be possible once the head is removed. Driving the nail through the
wood or moving the wood over the nail - same thing, relatively. It's just
that a sharp blow on the headless nail will utilise the mass of the fence
whereas trying to lever off a panel will probably break the panel.
