advice on removing a popper base


Recommended Posts

I'm fitting some half doors and need to fit the propper 'lift the dot' poppers at the leading edge (the ones that only can be removed in a certain direction), however, on the passenger side, the normal popper base on the corner of the the scuttle top is riveted in (a long story, but I had to remove the screw that originally held this base in and replaced with a rivet). The hole through the ali skin is quite large.


If I try to drill out this rivet I know that it will just turn in the hole.


So, a few questions....


1. Will these propper 'lift the dot' poppers work OK with normal popper base?

2. Are there any suggestions as to how I can remove the rivet without totally wrecking the paintwork?

3. Should I drill a fresh hole behind this popper and have two popper bases in this location? (will look sh!te).


I have exactly the same problem on the front lower popper base on the passenger side (when I fitted the toneau, I riveted the extra poppers).


Thanks for any help *thumbup*
