Re: Plastic rivets and rivet gun-must have tools for the WK

I just bought a dozen bags of push-on plastic fasteners and now they come up with something new....

If your either cheap, or cant wait for shipping, which I happen to be both, it can def be done by useing pliers and a closed end wrench.



I worked the rivet first to soften the plastic where the tabs bend.



Held the head of the rivet tight up to the piece being riveted while pulling the pin out with pliers.



All installed, leaveing the pins on where the rivets dont show. The visible ones I clipped off the pins.

this man is a genious!

Re: Plastic rivets and rivet gun-must have tools for the WK

Does anyone have a size or part number for the plastic rivets (2 on each side inside wheel well) that hold the front fascia on? Have the stainless steel grill insert ready to go but can't find these rivets from any local auto parts shop near me, the jeep dealer wants $14 Aud each!! Need to order online from the States and just want to make sure I get the right ones.
Cheers.
EDIT:
Never mind I just saw it in the first post (#6500911 1/4" diameter)

Here in states we buy from clipsandfasteners.com but if you can source something close in size it will work. You get a whole box from thatvplacr for price of one from jeep
