Pop rivet source

Does anyone know of a good source for aluminum/aluminum pop rivets? Or does anyone use the ones with steel mandrels?

Thanks!

Carlos Ferguson

I am looking for standard 1/8" pop rivets with an aluminum head and aluminum shaft... not the olympics. Any spot for those? Folks that do a new interior must have a source, it takes about a thousand!

Thanks,

Carlos

I have found them at Home Depot, Lowes, and NAPA. They come in long,medium, and short. On the iterior panels amd most everything I have used them on so far I have used the medium length.
