You can do what was suggested in the link that sniperviper posted, or you can drill them out.

Krylon is about the best spray paint you can get. You should be able to find it in near any hardware store.

Any kind of spray paint will work, just remember to prep it correctly because the key to a good paint job is the preparation.

If you can get to the rivets from the backside you can use a dremel with a cutting wheel and cut off the back side of the rivet so you don't take a chance of damaging the front side of the case. Why do you need to take the case apart anyway? You don't necessarily have to do that to paint it. I wouldn't be drilling out any rivets though if I were you.
