Leaky Outer Skin 63 Safari

Well Folks by using the Dye test method I have my leak narrowed down to one seam above the front window. My Question is what is the prefered method for re sealing. Should I remove all the rivets in the seam re apply Vulcum and re-rivet, or remove one old rivet and replace with a new one (with a dab of Vulcum of course!!!!) AKA one rivet at a time??????? Thanks alot for any input

well i removed enough of the old rivets on one of the seam to open it up a little and remove the old cloth tape sealer, cleaned with solvent, apllyed new vulcum with syringe and re riveted and no Leaks!!!!!! this process worked really well and I am gonna try it on the other leak next week.
