I like using stainless screws when I can, but they will corrode when in contact with regular steel. Dissimilar metals. Galvanic reaction. Ford specifically says not to use them for the aluminum bodies and beds either.

I always thought they were okay with aluminum, but Ford doesnít think so.

I used vice grips. Grab the head and twist left and right like you're tightening and loosing them and pull at the same time. They'll come right out.

I used a steel trim tool that has a notch in the middle. I can work it between the coroplast and washer so that the rivet is in the notch. It will pop the right right out. I replaced the rivets with plated self tapping screws.

Craftsman Universal socket on an impact driver spins them right out of the hole in reverse. They grab anything close in size. Easy peasy. As others have said, replace with self tapping bolts.

Only problem is I haven't seen a Sears store in years & just about all the Kmarts are gone now, I guess you might still find them online.
Harbor Freight might have something similar for a fraction of the Craftsman price.

They sell Craftsman elsewhere now. It was one of the profitable things Sears sold off.

True Value Hardware sells Craftsman Tools. Was just in there yesterday & saw them. I was wondering about those darn ram-set nails as well.

I have a set from Harbor Freight at the house. And believe it or not I still have a Kmart a couple of miles away, and a Sears at the Mall.
