Land Rover Series 1 rivets
« on: May 20, 2020, 03:16:25 PM »
Hi All,
First time poster...
I'm currently restoring my 1956 series I and am looking to buy the rivets needed to put the car back together, I want to use the original ones and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with doing this?
Looking online at rivets to purchase there are 6 options:
Solid round head rivets
Solid flat head
solid counter sunk
semi tubular
PoP (assuming these weren't used on originals)
Bifurcated

If anyone knows the difference between when and where these where used in the original build it would be greatly appreciated as i would like to keep it as original as possible!
Any general advice/experience anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
Cheers
