Re: 5kS roof chrome strip R&R
Yes, a hammer and a good sharp chisel should sheer off the rivet head.
you may want a punch to pop the rivets in with. For a scraper, you need
something with a rather narrow head. That's why I included screwdrivers
list. I pried from the inside and gave it plenty of time. You may also
bring along an assistant to support the long piece after you get it
You'll also need a phillips screwdriver to remove the metal trim piece
Any direct correspondence, please put my name in the subject line so I
don't miss it.
Please send any direct mail to my private address as I don't keep up with
the list very well.
