Trouble removing front banana wraps

Yesterday I spent several hours trying to remove the street side wrap on my 65 overlander. All outside rivets drilled, I also removed the inside skin to shear off hidden rivets, still not budging! I only removed the lower skin on inside that stops just passed the couch.. I really don't want to take off anymore inside skin! Can't believe how many rivets hold this damn thing on!

Banana wrap trim

Did you get all the rivets behind the belt trim, I found out the hard way that I had missed two after going cross eyed from drilling out all the rivets.

Yes, I even sheared all where it attaches to C channel with a putty knife. I think there are some behind the long outer skin, but it's difficult to see without drilling more buck rivets, then I'm into that whole side panel!

My whole point of this is to have them English wheeled while I have that inside wrap around skin off!

Are your banana wraps riveted to the C channel with pop rivets?
