In the attached photo of the flywheel cover I show the engine data plate off my Deere 110. I hope to sandblast this part this weekend and I had a concern. Should I try to cover that plate with tape or somethin of the like or drill out the rivets and take it off? I don't wamt to risk damaging it which is why I'm inquiring seein if maybe someone has done this before. Thanks for your time.

Drill out the rivets. That way you have good paint behind the tag, too. That is what I did on my Cub Cadet.

I was told by an old-timer in the sandblast business once that you could mask things off with multiple layers of duct tape. He said one layer wouldn't do it-it gets so thin its hard or impossible to remove it.

They might not be rivets, they might pop out with something like a tac puller.
I still have an old 110.

Thanks for the replies folks I will do the aforementioned task and drill out the rivets. Then I'll just get some new ones, and tot the person that mentioned good paint behind the tag too is a valid point that I overlooked. Much much to learn about all this still even though I'm by trade an ag mechanic. I'm only 22 been working at a place 2yrs and I've learned there's absolutely no replacement for experience and helpful people like you find on here. Thanks again.
