    Default New Cool Tool

    I don't recall how I came across this tool but used for the first time today. When joining the interior panels, CC's uses (for the EX-2 at least) a nylon snap rivet. Which work fine until you have to remove them. PITA!

    This tool worked great for removal and also replacement.

    Cheers

    Always have a bag of extra nylon snap rivets handy! Even with the tool, they dont always survive a removal. Everyone needs to, as you need to change the backup battery at every annual.

    Thanks for the tip. It's so close to the tool I would have made for the job that I bought one. Have previously spent a few hours grinding special tools out of different Harbor Freight pliers.

    Tip for anyone buying this. Knock off all the sharp edges on the tips and corners and keep only the working edges sharp. You'll save some scratches on your nice panels.

    A butter knife works well. Just need to tell your wife you will keep looking.
