ABS Banana wraps

I have a rear banana wrap missing. I got one of the ABS replacements. Anyone have experience attaching? Rivets, screws? other methods?

Roger.

Use 1/8" or 3/16" pop rivets for installation.

Add a bead of Vulkem sealer to the top seam.

Thanks Andy. How far from the edge, to insure it doesn't crack?

One half inch or so, just so it winds up underneath the rub rail molding.
