Correct rivets for the ash tray
« on: October 31, 2013, 01:47:03 AM »
Does anyone know where to find the correct rivets to rivet the ash tray to the front pull out. I disassembled it to refinish the parts separately and now need to reassemble it with the correct rivets. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will send it out if there is someplace that will do it to the correct specs.  Thanks,. Scoop

I finally found the correct rivets for the ash tray. I also purchased the tool to mushroom the ends correctly. If anyone needs theirs done send the pieces to me and I will rivet them for you. Pictures of the finished product are attached.  Scoop

Yes   1/8 inch by 1/8 inch semi tubular rivets. They are for rebuilding Tonka Trucks.  Thanks, Scoop
