    Convertible latch

    Hi All,  My 72 Conv has a busted latch on the passenger side.  Latch works but 3/4 'handle' of it got busted.  I see I can get replacement parts,  however it appears to remove the old latch might require separation of the canvas and drilling of the rivets out.  Any comments or suggestions.  Tony
