Benson! I've heard of Arpanet but never met anyone who actually used it. It was only active in about 4 or 5 western cities as I recall. It was followed by the expanded Darpa IIRC That's interesting about the sizes. Thanks for sharing!

Did you ever get your hinge pin removed? And if so by what means?

Vern, No I didn't! Rather than ruin the hinge mountings from hitting it too much or fooling around with more tooling, I'm gonna leave it alone. They're really in there! I used ATF w/acetone, nothing! I have a set of pin drifts from my toolmaking days and a 2 lb hammer that I could not budge them with. I then tried to take the hinges off and the screws cannot be turned. So I'll just work around it and do the car with the doors on it. I don't like it, but what else is there?

If you don't have to worry about damaging paint , I heat the cowl half of hinge red hot where the pins go through . Heating red hot expands the hinge so that the pins can be more easy to remove . If failed attempts have been made at driving the hinge pin out from the bottom , the pin is probably expanded . This is why I prefer drilling the pin part way out from the top side and driving the remainder of the pin out from the top side .
