Banana wrap rivets

Can any one tell me the correct size and grip length rivets needed to reattach the banana wrap and the moulding that covers the seam? Also is it good to run a bead of sealer behind the trim as well as above it?

Thanks, Paul.

They are 1/8" diameter. I used 1/2" grip rivets. Yes, a bead of sealant behind the top of the trim is the way to go. Just wipe off the excess squeeze out with a rag dampened in mineral spirits.


Work is never done, so take time to play!
