I looked up the link and he is selling the "A" rivets (1100). You should use MS20470AD5-5 or 6 rivets (2117) available at any aircraft supply store for this application. Be sure and get a #5 470 rivet set.

Rivet Question

Aerowood,
Not to hijack a thread but I have a rivet type question.
I have seen you post on this and another thread regarding correct sizing or strength of rivet. I need to remove and replace the door hinges on my 59 FC for reinforcement because the skin flexes as the door moves. What type of rivet should I be looking to use?
Thanks,
Tony

You could use several different types of rivet, aluminum, stainless steel or monel. the choice is yours.
Aluminum- MS20470AD5-X
Stainless- MS20613C5-X
Monel- MS20615-5M-X

X=length in 1/16" increments

Thanks! Is there a special rivet set required?
Looks like you answered that question upthread.
Thanks again
