There are alot of pieces that were instanced, so I don't want to have to delete all of the instances and redo them as duplicates if I can avoid it...
I believe you may have answered your own question there...
If you used the "instance" option when duplicating something, whatever you do to one half of a model WILL be done to the other side.
Using instancing is handy if you're modeling a character, per se, and while building half you want to see what the whole thing will look like as a whole, while you model one half, the other one will update with the same changes.
If you DO NOT want your other side acting like your original, go to
Edit -> Duplicate (Options Box)
and make sure the "Geometry Type" is set to "Copy" and NOT "Instance."
As for your case, I'm not certain if you can remove the instancing on instanced objects, and make them...well...not instances :headbang:
