I just purchased a speedster body and found a number of brace rivets missing from the fire wall. ( photos attached ).
They measure 3/4 in. long and the screw goes into the open end.
Can anyone give me the name of this type of rivet and were to obtain.
Those look like bookbinding screws or interscrews.
Rivet nut insert RN series.
Forgot to add:
Try Fastenal or McMaster-Carr
Restoration Hardware sells them
Leather shops should have them. I buy them at farm store.
Leather and harness shops have them; you may find them cataloged as Chicago Screws
Restoration Supply Company out of Nevada specializes in odd, obsolete or just plain weird fasteners and other sundries for antique machinery restoration.
They have these and just about anything else you might need to complete you your project.
George, they are called "Chicago screws", most all harness makers have them and available in brass, nickel, chrome or stainless. I have access to them if needed.
Also searchable under "barrel nut"
To all of the replies, THANK YOU !!!
I now have a direction and will start today.
They have those at the Michael's near here.
Thanks to all, I found the rivets and put them on the car.
