I just did one yesterday as a matter of fact...
I use an old wood chisel and hammer. You line the chisel parrallel to the body and as you hit you can see it slice through the head. Takes half a dozen hits or so, but it shears it off cleanly.
Each of my front windows have about 40 rivets apeice. I could not imagine trying to drill straight enought to remove them without walking all over the place.
The chisel method cleanly removed the heads and the window frame came off easily. Then all the shafts needed to be trimmed flush. Leaving the shaft part of the rivet in is actually a good thing as your holes may not line up perfectly when you put your window or body peice back if you drilled all the way through using the drill method.
I still need to clean up the vulkem around these, but the rivets shown were all removed with a chisel. The left ones were shaved and the right ones were not shaved yet...
