I have a 27 Sport Touring. I want to mount one of my robe rails to the back of the front seat, and I do not want to remove the uphoulstery. I do not think just using sheet metal screws will be good enough. If I have too I will use sheet metal screws and replace with bolts and nuts later if I need to remove the uphoulstery for any reason ... Any suggestions .... Thanks ....
Why not those expanding wing nut drywall fasteners? The only downside is that they may require a larger hole than you would otherwise need.
Easy to do with just large diameter sheet metal screws. I found some stainless single slot, oval head sheet metal thread screws.
Works just fine.
I just reattached a bulb horn on my 10 with RivNuts 1/4 -20. Solid now. I was in the AutoDoor industry 30 years and all mounting is via RivNut. You need a RivNut tool, about 60 dollars. RivNuts come in alum and in a goldtone color for Brass cars. 200% better than any sheet metal screws. Don't waste your money on cheap tools and buy only CRL RivNuts.
You will not believe how good they are in the old cars.
Avoid steel. Not Rivets-RivNuts.
Cary: I found some rivnuts kits on ebay. They were about 41.00 for tool and 10 nuts each in 5 different sizes in aluminum. Do I need the steel nuts.? Are The aluminum ones good enough.... Sounds like a usefull tool and something I do not have....
The Aluminum one. Steel are too hard to set and replace.
