    I finally received my replacement wheel emblems for my Skylark. I've also got replacement wheel cap retainers on order. Any suggestions on how to remove the old retainers?

    You need to grind off the four rivets, I tapped those four places #4-40 iirc and used screws for the reinstallation.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I was afraid that was the answer but was hoping for an easier way.

    Max Damage I'm thinking about it!

    If you are skilled with a drill you can go that way too. Just drill off the heads.

    Yup - that 's how we did it way before the internet was even a gleam in Al Gore's eye.
