Removing the tonneu cover hooks

Has anyone gone through the process of removing the tonneu cover hooks after installing a hardcover?
Do they just drill out?
What size drill bit should I use?
Any tricks to look out for?
I picked up 20 plastic plugs from Ford to plug up the holes.


Cheers
Brett

Re: Removing the tonneu cover hooks

There was a thread on this in the Ute section, basically they just drill out but hold the plastic part with pliers so it doesn't spin around and mark the paint.
