So my EVAP tank is in the trash can to make some room in the engine bay. Does anyone have a recommended procedure for removing these rivets? It might seem like a stupid question but I just want to avoid doing damage to this area. If anyone has any special tricks please share!

Just drill them out; I used 1/8th in. bit, punch out the centers with drill, and if need be, use a cold chisel, or sharp screwdriver and hammer to slice off. The al rivets are soft.

Thanks I didn't know they were aluminum. That will make things easier.
