learn me something barry

why would you not just pop rivet them in there?

mine are pop riveted in the hood of the sedan & i'll admit your's LOOK a little better... but i didn't have to spend all day "bucking" with mine either. =;



I had pop rivets on the vega too. But really like the look of the solid rivets and what they tell me that they don't loosen up :-k
I was going to rivet them but after talking to Dennis he said you don't need the tool and there are 10 that I can't reach anyway. So I gave it a shot. I also put a very thin SS washer between the panel and the stem of the rivet as per my body guy................

Any way I would rather buck all weekend than rivet O:) =; =;

Did you know, that Dzus fasteners was first designed to be flush with the surface? No part above the surface level for arodynamics. They where used on fuel and inspection doors on aircraft. The Part that most of us put on the outside was under the skin. The skin was then drilled and dimpled and the back side was filed flat. they put them on with countersunk rivets then nothing but screw showed. The retaining spring was installed with countersunk rivets also. It made a nice tight fit. The fiberglass parts we are useing them on now won't allow this.
Before TIG welders Riviting was the approved method of fastening two pieces of aluminum together. A solid rivet was used because pop or cherry rivets had a problem.The have a hole on the inside for pulling them and after a while the pull stems seem to fall out leaving a weak rivet if aluminum or bimetal corsion if they are steel.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against pop rivets, They are good for most things, unless You want it strong or to just look a bit nicer than average. Remember, use steel pop rivets with steel and aluminum with aluminum and if you are fastening aluminum to steel use zink chromate primer on the aluminum parts that touch the steel for it to last long term. The zink chromate isn't a bad idea even between the aluminum skins to be fastened, even if your going to polish the aluminum. The excess will polish off.

To elaborate on what Barry is saying paint the frame under the window black, the same as the edge of the window. You can still tell when the paint on the window starts to chip, but it's a lot less noticeable.

i have had that problem in the past, now when i do service calls i require a credit card to secure payment. they can pay however they want but the security is there and i also run the card to make sure it is good. small buisnesses get set back from these dead beats. had about 3 of them this year no more. guess i will be in court again this year/ =P~

I am waiting on 35k all over 180 days late! ](*,) As our government continues to decimate the manufacturing sector
as they say we are moving towards a service oriented economy, If we don't manufacture and sell goods to other countries what supports the value of our dollar? :-k
