Hi ! I'm looking forward here to advise / instructions on removing and replacing the rear 1/4 panel body sections. Actually, I got a set of side scoop panels that I'll be installing in replacement. This will be on an 88 Formula. At first glance, I see what appears to be plastic rivets holding the panel(s) on. so I'm assuming to simply sheer off the head of the rivets and the panel comes off. I see Fiero Store has the replacement rivet kit. Appears to be relatively simple. Am I right? Do I need any special tools ?
One things for sure. These functional side scoops are super cool ...no pun intended....and I'm eager to get them on.

Make sure you can't simply punch the center of the rivet out first.

I seem to recall a bag of F-bombs being the primary tool needed to get those plastic rivets out. I think a cordless drill with the right drill bit would be easier even though it's not metal. A set of plastic trim panel spatulas/putty knives will be nice to have on hand. I will be doing this very task on one of my cars in a week, so good luck!

There are a couple of metal rivots as well to drill out just be sure to buy new trim holders before you start as your going to destroy those as brittle.
