Well they are riveted on from the factory and the way I've always removed rivets like that is to use a grinder with a cutting wheel and cut an X in the head of each rivet then use an air chiesel or hammer and chiesel to finish removing them

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

that sounds easier than drilling them out

The shop had to replace mine for inspection. I guess they ground off the head of the rivets and bolted on the new ones.

That is the quickest way I have found to do it!!! It helps to have a good air hammer

Also when I installed mine I drilled a 3/16" hole in the bottom to let water and debris drain out
