MKS Pedal Cage Removal with Rivets?

Hey gang,

Coming up short on google and this forum. I'd like to completely restore some MKS pedals that have riveted cages (sand/buff/anodize) and want to know if I can remove the rivets? I would imagine they are actually threaded screws with the heads machined smooth and if so then simple Dremel notch should be able to remove them. I know what you're thinking...insane, borderline stupid, but they are my pedals, not yours I would re-install with SS bolts and a turned down crown head screw (I do this sort of thing all the time on my mini-machine lathe). I couldn't imagine they are actually pop rivets as the anchor is a solid piece. Rivets are designed to be a substrate-through application/process so the pin when pulled through budges out the backside of the rivet making the substrate/piece captive together. Just wondering. Thank you.
