any sugestions on sealing these rivits, I tried some clear coating but no luck.
The best material and applicator for the fine job of seam and rivet sealing, IMHO (of course) is Acryl-R. You can get it from the A/S factory store or any dealer. It is what they use at the factory, along with Sikaflex polyurethane for the larger sealing jobs.
It comes with a grease gun type needle-fine trigger applicator and really gets into those small spaces. You might want to search for 'Acryl-R' on the site. You will have a lot of information come up!
