Rain water leaks - 75 classic

I need to warn you, the first time you pull the trigger on the pneumatic riveter you will think “why did I wait so long”. I have the HF job and it has worked great. You can play around with air pressure to it if you are concerned about too hard of a squeeze. Although, the strength of the stem in the rivet is primarily in charge of the squeeze. Translation, you will get a much harder squeeze with a stainless rivet than you do with an aluminum rivet. I may be overthinking this, but I tend to stay with aluminum rivets on the coach for this reason, and to avoid any galvanic corrosion issues.

If I remember correctly I used the magna lock protruding head blind rivets when I redid the door. I worked them over a bit with a file once they were installed. They blended in nicely once they were primed and painted.

Thanks Dean - looks like I'm going to need a bunch from checking just the gutter trim - like most of these projects plan for three times as many at least.
