I would like to remove the internal doors in my Triang Princess 2 for scraping and painting purposes but the hinges seem to be held in place by tiny nails/pins rather than screws, though It's difficult to be sure. In any case I don't think they are screw-outable and I wondered if anyone could tell me how to remove them without damaging the hinges? Any advice would be gratefully received!

They are small pins. I try and keep the doors in place, as removing the pins losen the holes and they never quite go back in the same way.

If i have to I use a small flat head screwdriver to slowly force the hinges out from the wall.

Ah, right, I will work with them in place, it would be a shame if I damaged them in any way. Thanks Trevor.

Zoe, I have restored a few Triangs and I agree with Trevor always try to leave them in place. The air is blue whenever I try to fix these doors back on!

Thanks Wendy, I'm glad I decided to ask now instead of just having a go!
