Drill em out. Try not to make the hole any bigger. I know that sounds hard to do but start with a small drill bit. Also if you can remove the plastic from around the rivets before you try to remove them it will help.
You can get all the replacement parts from Andy at OEX in sunset or maybe even Jason from this site.

If the holes end up bigger....they did for me...just use bolts, washers, and locknuts. (This of course is assuming you can reach the area from the inside). Otherwise, you just need to use bigger rivets, or screws of some sort.

3/16" drill bit is what I believe will do the job.
If you've got a dremel you could also grind down the top of the rivet then chisel the head off.
Yes you'll need a rivet gun, can be had for $10-20, and you'll need somewhat specific rivets. You can get them from Hook1.
I'd stay away from wellnuts just because of the big hole needed to use them.
