    You need to drill out the rivets

    If its not too late dont do it.If you drill out the rivits it leaves the remaining part of the rivits inside the shell of the t top and you cant get them out.I have had this problem before and had to drill a small hole in the corner of the t top and filled the hole with glue and shake the top to get all of the rivits to stick to the glue,it was a pita.

    You dont have much of a choice on the broken rivet except to drill it out and put a new rivet in it.
