    Is that the "b pillar" ? Well the cover any way I have a hole worn through where the door shuts I might wrap it but not sure how to remove it thought I best ask first

    Iv seen the rivers is it just a case of drill them out and it comes away?

    You should just be able to drill them out.

    yh its a simple drill out the rivets and it falls off... make sure you have a rivet gun handy to put it back on again

    no its pretty easy, just use a small drill bit and then once you have it off clean off the area before you refit it back on

    Just tried 3mm by 13mm. If you can get 3mm by 10mm of a little less I'd go for them. Mines done the job for the time being but I feel it needs to be tighter ;p

    I would wrap them in gloss black if I wasn't a complete dope, don't like the carbon. I'd just mess it up mate haha, I'm an idiot.

    How did you manage to get the inside of the door to be flat? Couldn't for the life of me get it without messing it up. Outside if perfect but it isn't flat, has a curve to it.

    Hi, did anybody find out the correct rivet sizes? I plan on removing mine this weekend to wrap them but want to have everything prepared before hand.

    Oh and sorry for the old thread revival but I've been looking everywhere then stumbled upon this and thought I'd found the answer lol. Anyway hope someone could help, would be really appreciated.

    I don't think it would be any good as from what I've read I think I need rivets that are 3mm in diameter but need to know the length. Thanks a lot for your help though mate.
