Door Skin Rivet Question

Hello,

Just been reading post and read comment about leaks caused by pop rivets on door.I have 59' flying cloud and was wondering with what I can replace pop rivets with without taking the entire skin apart. Would Olympic rivets be better for this. Thanks,

Hello ehumphrey,

Without taking an interior skin off you're limited to olympic rivets for this application. IMHO they are suitable for this application.


Regards and Welcome,

Kevin

Thanks for your help. I will drill the old ones out and see what things look like.
