Corvette Small Rivet Tool Set 63-82
- MADE IN USA!
- Small Rivet Tool Set ( Used on vent doors and heater plenum )
- A special shape is used for the die to control the size and shape of the rivet head. This tool is designed for brass rivets as used by GM on the vent doors and heater plenum. A different die shape is required for steel rivets because the riveted head will not expand properly and make a tight riveted joint. The vent door is difficult because it is a sandwich of two thin steel plates and a dense foam gasket material. The door must be supported on blocks to clear the mounting tangs and the rivet head must be supported while the rivet is being set. The inside heater plenum contains a movable door and has a steel plate riveted to the fiberglass plenum to close it. The replacement of the rivets is rivets is difficult because you need to be careful not to crush the fiberglass. This tool make doing either rivet job easy.
