Hints on removing gasket

I have my exhaust off my 2000 LT, and I want to put new gaskets on between the exhaust flanges and the head. The old gaskets seem real tight, any hints on how to remove them?
Thank you to all that have been very helpful on this Forum.

Take a screwdriver to them. It doesn't matter if you destroy them, you won't be reusing them.

Re: Hints on removing gasket

Be sure to retorque after a few thousand miles.

On a side note, check the torque everytime you do a major service.

Can these gaskets be reused without having major leaks?

I tried to get one out without destroying, but no luck. You best get new ones...
