Got a little more buck riveting done yesterday along with patching a few holes that the outriggers put thru the outer skin and damage from a rear street side blow out. Thanks to help from my friends Aron and Kenny P!

Yep, but I still manage to bang myself up pretty good! My accident protocol usually centers around Hydrogen Peroxide and Crazy glue.

Hey Mark
Its not that big of a deal. make sure to clamp the molding to the frame as you are working. I didnt at first and almost broke the piece I was bending. I made a few small cuts on one end and put a slight bend in it. Start attaching as you go, heat (doesnt take long) and carefully bend into place. I used a rubber mallot to gently tap into place remember the metal will be hot , so wear gloves. If you have a small scrap piece I would practice heating and bending til you feel comfortable. I got some med vice grips from Harbor Freight that worked well. Let me know how it goes!

Rivet squeezer?

Hey Marzboy,
That looks really good-you have to be proud of what you have accomplished. I have not seen that type of tool before. We have a hand riveter and an pneumatic riveter. What does this one do that is different from the ones we have? I am glad you are making such good progress and are willing to share here.

We have so many things to purchase to get this up and running but would like to save extra work if we have the right tools and the knowledge on how to use them.
Sandy

Hi Sandy
It is a rivet squeezer that I bought on sale last year. The price was great so I just couldnt pass it up. It works well when you are in a tight spot or dont have a bucking buddy (like me).
Thanks for your kind words, you guys are making great progress, even if at times it doesnt feel like it.

Riveted the streeside wheel well (and molding) all the way to front with my son Craig. He was really great at it, we only had to redo on rivet! Here are a couple pics of the patches well. There was a tire blowout that ripped the outter skin on the rear streetside wheel well.
