Get a piece of cardboard and poke holes in it large enough to hold the back end of your pop rivets. Stick plain rivets in a piece of cardboard. Get a spray can of white paint. Spray paint the rivets. Allow to dry. Use.

Have a good weekend popping off!

White ones you can get at mcmaster.com. Off white ones you will have to paint yourself.

Just about anywhere that sells vinyl siding and most industrial fastener supply houses will have them. My company buys about 50,000 at a time...and a few always seem to go missing.

AS in Jackson Center sells them, if you can't find them elsewhere.

To me, this means that any AS dealer sells them too...

Our shop has them by the dozen. White, off-white (ivory), black, blue, brown. Pretty much if we have a can of spray paint, we have rivets that color.
One of the parts guys was complaining we were out of black rivets. I went out back with a spray can and a box of rivets, and came back about 15 minutes later with a hundred black rivets.

This guy seems to have a ton of different rivets... looks like some white too. Good prices as far as I know... Even saw some Closed end aluminum in the bunch.

Blind Rivets, Open items in pop rivet store on eBay!

You're looking for aluminum rivets, of course...?

Just wodering if all the same sources quoted here have aluminum ones, or are they all steel?
