Yup, as others have said, this is the way to go. Get ready to be sore.
I'm not sure if the newer bluebirds are the same as my '90, but mine has two panels on the wall. One above the chair rail, and then the chair rail itself and below. If this is the case on yours, do not attempt to remove the bottom portion - it goes under the floor, and won't come out simply by removing the rivets. It would need to be cut off, which is far more trouble than it is worth. Ask me how I know.
