Grille rivet tool and rivets

Hey guys, long time no post but I'm always lurking around!!

When I restored Bonnie and Clyde 5 years ago I went to great lengths to make the repro grille look just like an original (sorry Ricky, it is a repro but with the original fog lamp supports and really nice rivets!!). I purchased a tool and the correct rivets and the when I was done I offered them to the board for others to use. Last I saw the tool and rivets had been used by several members and were last forwarded to "SJACKS" by "Cool Manchu".

I've had another request for the tool and rivets and was hoping someone on the board knows where they are and could offer them up to the next person who needs them.

Thanks!
Lee Nevill

Rivet Photos

Neil,

Not sure what you mean by photo's of rivet installation (you put the rivet in and smack the tool with a hammer!).

Here are a couple photo's of B&C's grille with the correct rivets.

The tool and a bag of rivets are out there, just need the last user to step up and offer it to the board....
