John, if you use olympic's you will have to redrill many interior holes. Some original interior rivets are 1/8 and some some are 5/32. I didn't get even a hint of anyone questioning what you want to do. Only giving you some information. You will be well served by getting an air compressor and air riveter. I found the $99 one worth the extra money at harbor freight.

Yes thanx, as I disassembled the intereor (with my 1/8" drill bitS ) I was thinking about all these new 5/32" holes. It will be a little time consuming but you know it's only time. I got more of that than money. I'm just glad that I have the want and talent to take on something like this ( my buddy Loren has been the brains).
I just couldnt let a pretty old girl like this go off to be a Red Bull can.
it will be a neat new rig with a classic old skin.
sometimes the best combination is the old with the new.
