Yes, I think I was able to find the correct rivets for both early cars (a
drive rivet, not a "pop" rivet) and late cars (a closed-end rivet). If not
exact, they're *very* close. I probably have many dozens of them --
certainly several lifetime's supply -- because I had to order a bunch to
get a few.
Here's are details front and back of the early drive rivet.
Send me a note off-list, Brian, and we'll see what we can do.
