How do you remove bodywork clips?

I'm talking about the ones that are riveted? Do I buy a special tool to remove these?

I installed sharkskinz clips and I don't care too much for them. I prefer the "S" type clips.

Any ideas guys?

I believe the only way to remove rivets is to drill them out but I can be wrong.

Really? That would create a bigger hole in the bodywork and that's a NO, NO!

grind the head off the rivet with a dremel tool and slide the rest out.
they should be aluminum anyway.
