    Removing rear rub rail 04 GP1300

    Need to remove the rear rub rail to replace the Hydro-Turf. Once the outside rivets are removed how do you remove the rub rail. Do the 4 inside rivets need to be removed?

    I figured it out, just needed to slide the strip in the center of the rail to access the rivets.

    i didnt think it was gonna be that simple LoL and I guess I would just need a rivet gun to replace right ? Should I drill new hole cuz the current ones are cracked or jus use bigger rivets ?

    Are the big black plugs just giant rivets that are in the corners?

    Are you refering to the three black rivets on the corner rub rail?

    I am making a video on removing and installing Hydro-Turf that will help those wanting to take on this task.

    Yes those ones. I never seen ones like that so wasn't to sure on what to do. I need to remove the side rub rail and one of the screws is under the corner section. If you drill it out, how do you go about replacing it?
