Retaining door gap/ removing doors

I've been doing my body work getting the door gaps aligned , my question is how or what would be the best way to mark or drill small holes on each hinge so when I pull them back off I don't fight it and risk scratching everything up. When I had my 67 Camaro painted the guy pulled the pins out and left one hinge on the door jam and one on the door, but with these trucks pulling the pin out isn't possible. Any advice or past tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Guys.

I drilled a 3/16 " hole in the face of each hinge, I have 3/16 " pins...left the hinges on the doors. This worked well for me.
