Has anyone used a "mushroom plug"
as a rivet replacement? I called Hanson rivets to find an olympic rivet. I was unsure of the specifications, and hoped the Hanson sales persons may have had the same request many times before. Unfortunately, without the exact specifications I did not get a part number to order.
The sales person suggested a "mushroom plug",
and stated many trailer restorers use this, and love it. Here is the link to their product page:

I live in Long Beach, CA, are there any better sources (less expensive) to purchase the olympic rivets? Can anyone tell me the specifications for both exterior and interior replacements? I don't want to use the original style buck rivets if I don't have to.
