Question Baseboards and Walls

Greetings and salutations!

Im 3/4 through demo and now I need to remove the wall panels. Below the aluminum wall panels are steel baseboards with lots of large blind rivets. I posted a photo below.

https://www.skoolie.net/forums/membe...cture26186.jpg

I'm hoping the long lines of rivets attach each piece of steel to one another and not anchor baseboards to the wall. Any knowledge or tips and tricks for baseboard/wall removal would be most welcome.

Many thanks in advance.

Those baseboards/chair rails gotta stay in, they're a structural element. Most people clean out behind them as much as possible and shove insulation in the cavity.

That's great news, I did not want to have to try and take them off.
Thanks!!

- what Drew said - though I did cut the chair-rail / "lip" off of the baseboards in my bus as I did not the walls to come into the interior that much.
