removing inspection hatch / replacing daggerboard grip/carpet

Thread starter #1
Hello
I'm doing some maintenance on an old Laser 2 I've just acquired, and I'm not sure how to remove the rivets (see pic attached). Do I use a chisel to shear off the heads of each?
Also - I want to replace the strip of carpet that's used to grip the daggerboard. Any suggestions what to replace it with / where to get it?
Thanks
