Rocker Panel Removal/Options?

While I look for options to the standard black rocker-panel covers... How the heck do I remove them?

The connectors appear to be a "push-type"? Is there a special tool?

Help!

Thanks!

Drill out the middle of the plastic rivets and they will pop right out!

Yup, plastic fasteners are usually one-time use. You don't have to drill much, just enough to break the hold the plastic pin has and they pop out. If you want to put them back on, you'd need to buy some pushpins from a local autoparts store. I guess you could go the plastic rivet route again if you wanted.
