Likewise, people ask, what size rivets do I need?
The length of the rivet should be equal to the thickness of both objects you are fastening, plus 1.5 times the diameter of the rivet's stem. For example, a 1/2-inch diameter rivet being used to fasten two one-inch thick plates will have to be 2 3/4 inches long.
Also, how do you remove a rivet without a drill? A blind rivet is removed with a power drill by drilling on the hollow part of the rivet head until it comes off the shank. The same can be done by using a flat head screwdriver or chisel and a hammer. Place the tip of the tool between the material and the rivet head and tap it with a hammer until the head breaks off.
Consequently, what are Olympic rivets?
Olympic bulb-tite shavable head rivets are unique. Because of this unique quality, they are the ideal rivet to use for quick repairs on the exterior skin of aluminum trailers. They provide a clean look that closely resembles the original rivets used by the factory.
How do you fix an Airstream dent?
Bend the dent out using a body spoon. This is a metal tool with a rounded tip designed to push out dents without damaging the metal. To do this, you need to access the body panel from the back. You will need to go inside the Airstream and use a wrench to remove the pop rivets that hold the inner skin on.
