That rivet's missing and that one will be soon.

An eyeball check found two rivets on the 2003 International missing or soon to be missing. These are on the door side in the frame member just behind the door. Not owning or ever used any tool suitable to make this type repair any sugestions from the group (like I need to ask). These are not skin rivets but I assume to the frame.

I'll try to remember to take a photo next visit to the TT. All it looks like is a rivit head missing and the next one up showing to be bent/lifted on one edge. No damage is apparent on the skin or inside. This is in the lower side of the curve toward the roof directly behind the door bu tnot part of the door frame.

You probably are still under warranty, there is a special (Olympic) rivet & a 'rivet shaver' made especially for the Olympics that most dealers should have.
