Source for rivets
Sun May 17, 2009 5:23 pm


Looking for a source for rivets for my 05. Had to do some front end metal replacement and removed some of the aluminum. I know at one time when my dad had this bus we replace a lot of rivets and then tap in a button cap. Don't remember where he got the rivets and caps. I had some caps but they don't fit rivets that I got locally.
Thanks for any help , Ed :P

The main manufacturer that I am using for The Bus Parts Store gave me a complete 1.5" thick catalog of rivets that they manufacture. Of course the problem is that I can't tell what the difference is in most of them! I couldn't believe that there were this many kinds of rivets in the world! If I could somehow figure out which of these is the kind people want I could make a good deal on them.

The people at FSI [Fastening Systems International, 1206 E. Mac Arthur, PO Box 1372, Sonoma, CA – (707) 935-1170] know their products and are very knowledgeable about the various applications as well.

The outstandingly courteous gentleman who helped me acquiring the appropriate tools as well as the correct rivets for my particular requirement was Mr. Mark Herand, Vice President (mherand@fsirivet.com -- 800-344-2393 Ex 14).
