John: the trick is get the pry bar between the frame and the coroplast. It’s already “smashed” by the washer. Use the same washer and a self tapping screw in the same nail hole and it looks “factory” except it’s a screw not a nail.

Chuck, I'll try that again next time I run into nails holding the coroplast. Past experience, there isn't enough "shoulder" on the frame rail to approach it and pry it away placing the crowbar "sideways" on the frame (narrow part) and trying to go under the coroplast or under the nail diagonally or along the frame rail isn't possible because the edge of the coroplast gets in the way. Maybe I'm using a crowbar that's too large? I'll "finagle with it" next time. To me, it's just easier to slip a thin cutting wheel under the coroplast, cut the nail and the coroplast just falls away. That leaves a flat nail to hit with a center punch and it leaves a hole the self tapping screw will fit on reassembly.

I'll play around with it again next time. Thanks.
