Exclamation How far should a cleco travel?

we recently picked up a 64 Safari and on the drive home about 30 or more rivets popped . I drilled and replaced with 1/8" clecos ,but now I need move it to a storage building some miles away.With the whole route being under construction and us planning to make repairs inside and out.

Will traveling with clecos in place do more or less damage?

They'll hold OK under normal circumstances. Like Dirty Harry said: "You got to ask yourself one question. What made the rivets pop to begin with?"
