You could find a local machine shop that could true them up, but gaskets are cheaper and last a long time.

I "trued up" the manifold surfaces with a large aluminum block for flatness and 320 grit sandpaper.  Goth them really nice and flat.  Reinstalled it yesterday (hell - I got this "down-pat") and it worked great - no leaks - perfect.

So - to end this thread on a positive note, the manifolds can be removed easily - the drivers side takes a little finagling - the passenger side is a breeze.
