Hand Rivet Squeezer Tool

I was wondering if anyone in the Colorado Springs area had a hand rivet squeezer tool I could borrow (or rent for cheap). I'm doing some frame-on restoration on my 69 GT and I only have a rivet gun for the pop-rivets. One of the projects I have is to put lexan in the original rockguard frame. I don't want to break my "rare" windows! Thanks!

If I understand your post correctly, those tools are less than $15 at any hardware store. As hateful as they are, it's probably a necessary tool in any travel trailer.

Or you can rent mine for $20

fluxcap, you're correct. That's the tool I'm talking about. They're around $100 plus the dies that shape the head.
