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

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!
