Rock guard removal

Continuing with my '94 Excella 34 footer. It is now permanently set up in the NC mountains, never to move again. Have removed the window travel shields - won't ever need them again (those were easy). The lower rock guards are riveted on and swing our for cleaning. Would like to remove those as well, but hesitant to cut them off or deal with the rivets. Anyone ever removed those safely (or better yet - easily) ? Thanks

FYI What you refer to as rock guards are properly called segment protectors. Lots of people confuse the two. Rock guards protect the windows. I would be interested in buying them all but probably there is no easy way to get them to NM. You can easily drill out the rivets with a 1/8" drill. But then you have a hole. The best way to fill the hole is with Olympic rivets which are blind rivets you can install with a rivet tool,

Thanks for the feedback. Will most likely go the Olympic rivet route. Glad to sell them, but you're probably right - getting them from NC to NM probably costly.
