Body press studs

Graeme Smith

Recommended Posts

Some of the press studs the the ali panel have pulling out, leaving a hole too big to take another rivet. Using a larger rivet prevents the press stud from working - the "rim" of the rivet is too big for the press stud. And the ali panelling won't knock back with a hammer to make the hole smaller... How to re-fit the press studs?

Yep, I'd considered that (with the washer), but how do you get the washer behind the ali panel - it's the panel below the door...


Filing the head down - sort of tried that - maybe it'd work with some neater filing, although the rivet is still marginal on pulling through

Mmm - I almost posted that suggestion - but as I found when drilling for poppers (bags of $ in that line of business... *wink*) just underneath the sill-protector line, there is some chunky metal beneath the skin in certain places that won't even let you get a rivet in - let alone a rivnut...


Worth trying IAEF.
