removing diamond plating - rivets
So I bought a CJ7 and it is red with silver diamond plating...
... that's ok but i want to repair some body pieces but there is diamond plating in the way. I dont think i really need it on there cause its mainly going to be used to drive around to climbing spots and just kick around in on a few trails to do research (ecology student). So i had a few questions:
1. Wont the diamond plating help cause more rust?
2. What's the best way to get them off, they are riveted on there.
3. Is it worth it to take them off to repair rust or are the enough support?
This is it now:
This is how i would like it to look:

Throttle body spacer, K&N air filter, rusty's intake system, 2" spacer, 31"s, and all kinds of Thule crap!
work in progress!
