05 Mopar Body Kit Rivets
 
Whats up everyone. I'm installing my Mopar Body kit and I can't find a rivet gun to use with those plastic rivet things that secure the side skirts to the frame. Any ideas? Thanks

x2.

I bought this:

Hand Riveter with 40 Industrial Strength Poly Rivets

For the rivets in the wheel well when I was replacing the UCAs. It has worked well so far and think it would work for the body kit as well.

i used TimmyB's method.

I didnt have a rivet gun at the time either so here...

if u know how the rivets work it's quite simple. insert the rivet in while using a plier to hold the stem and pull down.

Thanks for the info. I ended up using some of those push rivets for now.
