they are basically part of the frame mechanism.....OK you could drill out the huge rivets, but it is not going to be an easy job with the soft top on the car...methinks (I wonder if you undo the 3 bolts on each side, if that part of the frame might swing up to allow you access?....but if the frame needs to come off, you have to undo all those little nuts at the rear, job gets bigger and bigger).....then you need to replace the huge drilled out rivets with something appropriate.
