    Just drill them out and toss them. You don't need the rivets. The factory used them so the gasket travelled with the pan without getting lost or damaged.

    No problem at all. Whenever you need to drill out a rivet, just get a sharp bit which is larger than the rivet. Remove the "ring" and the head will pop off.

    Yup yup sir. Kicked them old rivets to the road. Got the pan back on and proceeded to knock this H/C out big time.
