To drill it out you simply use a small drill bit, slightly larger than the diameter of the hole in the rivet and gradually go larger until the rivet is drilled out. Then it's just a matter of using a pop-rivet gun to put the new ones on when you get the pipe back from your coater. Are you looking at getting it powder coated or ceramic?
I wouldn't risk it personally. You'll have to order new rivets and PROBABLY a new badge (mine got damaged during the coating process, just too lazy to drill it out and re-rivet a new one on). The rivets cost like $0.12 each and the badge plate will cost you $12.00. Honestly the C/F *COULD* survive the baking because it's on an exhaust pipe, but.... I dunno, I'd hate to be the one who tries and then it gets ruined and you wind up having to order a whole new cone piece and who knows what that will run you
