Help! Question on removing interior metal panels to insulate


As I mentioned on other threads, I'm working on converting my Bluebird 2000 All American bus.
I'm currently working on insulating the ceiling area by removing all rivets, to then remove interior metal panels.
I removed most of them except the ones located by the driver's seat, the area over the door, the air relief valve (close to door), and the light indicator panel section.

I am concerned about removing these rivets and respective panels without affecting any of the wiring and electronics (radio,etc) there. I don't want to mess up any of it.

I looked around the different threads and did not find much information on this topic for Bluebird buses.

Does anyone have any idea how I should go about this? Your guidance would be extremely helpful.

check out the Broccoli Bus build, his is a 1998 model, although not an All
American it is very close to the same as my 1996 AARE . Seems the major
differences are from the floor down like frame and basements.

There was some conversation about this on the 8th page of my build thread. I didn't end up taking that stuff out.
