Drilling out rivets to pull off the bent and broken bits is like carefully unwrapping a birthday present. (At least, it is when the major structure beneath is OK!) At some point, you get to the undamaged core and then it isn't broken anymore, it's just unfinished. Good luck! This sort of project is very rewarding.
