Hi,
I have to rivet two of the top irons together as shown in the photograph.I need a detail that is better than what is shown. Can someone show me how they are attached there? I know they are riveted but I would like more information.

Here's a closeup of that area on my 1924, which should be the same in that area:

Thanks Mark,
That is exactly what I wanted to know

Mark,
So the flattened area of the rivet is on the inside of the car and round head is on the outside.

Nope, the other way around, flat on the outside, round on the inside. :-)
