Small community south of Pelahatchie, called Shiloh. Approx 30 miles east of Jackson! VERY rural.

quick question, are you drilling out the rivets or something else?

The mandrel is the thing in the center of the pop rivet that looks like a nail on a new unused rivet and is the piece of metal showing in the center of an installed pop rivet. Put a tool on it that looks like a stick of metal that's been narrowed down so the pointy end is about the same diameter as the mandrel (usually called a punch or a drift) and give it a couple good whacks with a hammer and you will push the mandrel out the back end of the rivet.

As usual, Google and YouTube are your friends. Google "how do pop rivets work" and prepare to be overwhelmed with information.
