From the looks of the picture, I think they may just twist 90 degrees and come out. It looks like they were stamped out of one peice.

Unfortunately, that's not the case. The hole they are in is round, so you can spin 'em all you want, they need to be pried out. It's not hard to do, but they're made of such a soft metal that they get pretty bent up in the process. Custom Jim figures that pop rivets would do to hold the strips in, but I wondered if the fasteners themselves were available still, however unlikely.

What I did was tapped the inside tab with a small blunt chisel till the fastener literally fell out off the hole. I was able to save them all that way. I do not know where to get new ones. Hope I was clear. If not send me a PM I can explain it some more.
