Soft Top Repair

Post by jrcotner » Fri Aug 10, 2018 1:22 pm

I need to replace some of the damaged leather tabs on my soft top. What is the best tool and/or technique to remove the the old rivets?
Thanks,

I have used a Dremel to remove one side of the rivets to get the straps off. Most leather supply stores sell rivets that work great for reinstall.

Thanks for the tip. I was thinking o fusing a drill but a dremel is a better idea.
