Interior rivets over the years have had different colors.
But, their diameter has always remained the same, namely 1/8 inch (.125).
Of course different lengths, depending on where used.
The sizing of pop rivets is easy.
The first number is the diameter in 32 nds of an inch.
The second number(s) are it's grip range in 16 ths.
As an example, a # 48 pop rivet is 1/8 inch in diameter and has a grip range of 1/2 inch. The length is actually about 1/8 inch longer.
But for "buck rivets", the second number is it's actual length.
As an example, a # 46 buck rivet is 1/8 inch in diameter (.125) and has a length of 3/8 inch (.375).
