    I have searched this and coulndn't find a straight answer for either.

    How difficult is it to remove the but-pin on Classics Megs? Although I've seen it done I couldn't find any detail on the process.

    And two: which end on the pins on Ops lower arms (the lowest pins for attaching the vehicle panels) is the textured end? Again, a search proved un-successful for a play-by-play of the process.

    I'm planning on doing this Tonight, so I can start an new project.

    Thanks in advance.

    It depends on if you have the proper tools, i know from experience if you knock the pin out on the proper side its not too hard but if you try on the side meant to hold it in place then you'll be banging it out for quite a while. theres a rougher slightly thicker side that acts as a lock try to find the right side to knock out and you'll be OK

    Be real careful with the Prime pins on those arms, the casing around it cracks REALLY easy like.

    Honestly, I had no problem reapainting Prime, with those panels left together, and on the arm half.

    I've knocked out pins before, so I know what I'm doing in terms of process. Except now I feel like a fool because since the plastic is trasparent, I can see the textured end of the pin.:eek: 

    I'm not repainting him, I just want those panels gone.;)  I noticed the non-grip end of the pin is pushed down farther, so it creates a sort-of crater for my pin-taping-tool to sit and make it easier.
