repacking D&D slip-on- end cap removal tips?

I'm trying to re-pack a 10 year old pair of aluminum D&D slip-ons that likely have much of the sound insulation material burned out. What's the best way to remove the sleeve without damaging anything?

when you drilled the rivets out did you just drill enough to remove the head or did you get the body out of the hole as well? like did the drill punch thru and into the can

+1. Did this a month or so on a set of 2B's. Whack it good and hard.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! ~Hunter S. Thompson

Make sure you whack em on the side that WONT be seen when on the bike. Chances are its just corrosion, but if you whack em that hard, any marks will be noticeable once mounted. I'm sure you know this, but when frustated when an easy job turns hard, the little details can ruin the end result.
