MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Rubber bumper rivets
|Brought one rivet (95p) for a 1500 midget bumper, bumper to armature - 28 off per.|
Rivet is 0.185 inch by 1.25 inch long.
Bumper is about 3/16 similar for armature so why is steel rivet so long. I noted that when I drilled the rivets out there was about 5/16 of stub.
Anyone else done this job - also is it worth fitting ally rather than steel or stainless?
|I can't comment on the legth of the rivets, but using alloy rivets to hold steel together when both are exposed to moisture is a bad idea, as there will be galvanic corrosion and the alloy will fail prematurely.|
