Not easy to do if you are reusing the panels. You have to be right on to get the spot weld.

A spot weld remover I think will do you best. When you are done, just plug weld the hole shut with a MIG and grind smooth if you like.

Here is a picture of one.

The spot weld cutters are great if one panel, or even both are to be re-used. You can cut thru only one panel, and separate them. If both of the panels are going to be re-used, they can be re-welded with the plugs aligned in the holes. If only one panel is being used, either grind off the plugs left from separating the panels, or use the holes for the plug welds.
