'29 dodge Rivits, how to remove

So I'm cleaning up the frame for my '29, removing extra junk so I can box the frame.

This thing has more rivits than the queen mary.
The little rivits aren't too bad, but how do you get the big ones out?
I ground off the heads but I can't pound them out.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Keith

The reason the old builders used rivets is they completely fill the cavity they are in. Making a very strong joint.

You will have to drill them out to remove them completely.
