Those that have drilled out rivets on their exhaust...?

Were you able to get the other half of the rivets out of the exhaust or left it as is shaking about? I tried turning the pipes upside down and shaking but didn't get anything to come out.

They are stuck inside a cavity that caps the rear of the exhaust off. You could try drilling a hole in the end of the pipe where you removed the tips. The hole will add some noise but you can always take a welder and close it up afterward. There is no way to remove those without making a hole for them to escape.

I drilled a hole with a 3/8" bit on the bottom and got them out.

Use aluminum body w/ steel pin. Stainless rivs are a bitch to do with a manual riv gun.
