Rivet Head Removal tool

What style of rivet tool is made for the steel rivets on the inside and out side of the bus. I would like to reuse some roof panels and not damage them during removal.

Also can some one drop me the link to the style of air rivet and what type of rivet to put it back in when I'm ready.

Of all the things I've tried - use a 60-80 grit flap wheel on an angle grinder. Grind down to flush and then center punch it out with a BFH.

Fastest and cleanest way to do it.

I don't want to damage the roof sheet metal.
Seems like I know the tool it fits over the rivet head and then the drill bit runs down the shaft and cuts the head. keeping it in alignment so it cant slip off.

Here is the tool I was looking for to remove rivets and replacement drill bits. $20.00 off the northern price and northern does not offer the individual replacement drill bits.

What size rivet shank do the buses use.

Mine are 1/4". I didn't damage the roof by being careful with the flap wheel. Takes it right down to flush and then you're set.

With steel rivets, you're going to take forever if you try drilling them out. Good luck if you go that route!
