plastic rivet removal on bumpers.

Hello, so recently I decided to take apart my car bumpers and moldings to paint. With the help of forums I eventually got everything apart. The one thing I couldn't find was the best way to get out the plastic rivet push things. Well after almost breaking a couple trying different tools funny enough I used a curved precision pick to get them out and it was really easy and I can use them again with little or no damage. Take the pick and just slide it through one of the sides on top and lift up to get that middle peice that comes out to pop up a little then take the pick and push the tip against the top of the middle peice and push up. I'll have pictures to help too. The set I got on amazon are called TEKTON 6943 Precision Pick and Hook Set, 4-Piece. Hope that helps

Thanks for the tip. I have some of the picks. I'll just have to remember to use them.

You can also use a small blade screwdriver.

I use a forked nail puller that is on a screwdriver handle. That works the best for me.
