When you repaint a figure do you paint the arm rivets or do you clean them off when you're done?

No rule as far as I'm concerned. I guess I will paint the shoulder rivets to match and leave the elbow rivets uncovered most of the time.

Generally, I paint over the rivet, but it also depends on the rivet underneath and what color I'm painting. Like a black sleeve over an orange rivet (Annihilator) must be painted. But silver rivets on a flesh colored arm would be okay.

do you ever have a problem with the paint peeling off? Do you prep it somehow?

Yes, sanding and trimming the contact surfaces of the joints so they dont rub. I just use a few thin coats to keep the paint from chipping, but occasionally a rivet will give me a fit.
