Not sure what you mean, but the lower segments (behind the stoneguards) are the ones that were "blind riveted" in the area that would be under the bannana wrap. I'll see if I can get a pic of the "behind" area tomorrow.

End of Day 2

My personal memento I asked them to save for me...

A few dings, but mine none the less... I plan to cut a nice oval and frame it... what do you think?

Okay I see what you mean. I went back and looked closely at your photos. I hadn't heard of banana skins being buck riveted? Had a lapse there for a minute. Sounds like the remainder of those panels will be buck riveted except for the lower line-up at the banana wraps which will be pop riveted! Thanks! Looks like you're having as much fun as possible in a difficult situation! Best wishes!

Great place to eat (I worked there in college). Continue following SR 47 thru town from there (it winds around so watch the signs). After you cross the Great Miami River there will be an entrance to Tawawa Park on your right. A great place to drive thru and walk the dogs. If you continue out of town on SR 47 you will drive about 7 miles or so to the little village of Port Jefferson. It is an old canal town. About mid-way thru the village, on the right, at the end of a short street is a restaurant called Hussy's. It is right along the river so ask for a table by a window. Another great place to eat. Wonderful chicken. Head down I-75 to Dayton and visit Wright Patterson Airforce Base. They have a fantastic museum...you can get lost in that museum for a day easily. They have an IMAX theater. If I can think of other ideas of things to do I will let you know.
Tom
Tom / Sergei,

Thanks for the pointers. We haven't made it out there yet, still working from the hotel and the occasional break to run out to JC to see the progress of the surgery. We will try to get out there this weekend!

Appreciate the list of places to see. Thanks!

LED's

Kevin,

I am enjoying your photo-log of the repair. I have a 05, hope I do not ever need any segment replacement! Whew.

Say, where did you purchase the LED clearance lights? I think I would like some of those as well, as I am always "tinkering" on one of them plus my rear tailights are the same as your internationals, the cast aluminum LED.

Enjoy your ride back home.

I ordered them from Airstream. They are an off the shelf part from somewhere, so you probably could order them cheaper from somewhere else if you knew the manufacturer, but I was too lazy...

The are being installed on the 2009 models.

nice job bandit...

are they charging extra to work 'around' you?

back to the vintage unit in post 16...

that's NOT wheeler's unit, it's dicky riegel's trailer i think...

and the rivets used to OVERLAY another panel onto an existing one are blind/expanding rivets...

but not the exploding kind...

and while the original bucked rivets remain, the heads are ground OFF to make the surface smooth,

before panel overlay.

cheers

2air',

That's what I thought was being suggested the first time around....I'm beginning to feel those dizzy spells coming on...

So then why wouldn't the rivets used to overlay another panel onto an existing one be bucked?

In other words what's the excuse for the olympic rivets? Wouldn't it be just as easy to buck 'em?

I've got two of these overlay panels, same place as Kevin's, on my trailer and they have both been stitched up with the olympics.
