    I left them on and just tucked it down in there. Not sure how these other guys do it?

    My gpr did not have caps but on the wifes wave venture a flick of the screw driver poped them off. What ski are you doing this to??

    The black caps are made of aluminum and look similar to a soft blunt nail. The shaft which is cone shaped inserts into the rivet and gently tapped in with a plastic mallet. To take them out either pop them out with a screw driver or tap a divet into the center and drill it out with the rivet. I had taken my bumpers off to do my mats and they came out great. The reinstall of the bumper takes a whole 2 minutes to do. You can get the parts from riva for a couple of bucks. If you get the caps out just make sure you replace the rivets with aluminum ones so they dont rust, The old caps you can use a dab of silicone to keep them in place it you dont want to spen the 40 cents for news ones....lol

    I killed most of the black caps when I did mine. You can get a pack of 10 or 20 from your dealer for a few bucks.
