Use pop rivets, cheaper than using nuts and bolts. its also much better at doing permanent holds.

True, but for the end product wink.gif

Its also not a bad idea paint the whole thing rather than individual pieces and hence more work (but its a ptia if you're not good at painting).

I agree.. Only if i had a Rivet Gun. Are they cheap? Never used one. I had some M4 so used those just to hold it together during this test fit stage..
Wish my garage was warmer , would have painted today.. It's 50 out there..

Yeah they are cheap! I picked one up earlier this week for 15 dollars at Canadian Tire and it came with a bunch of rivets of assorted sizes. Should be around the same price at Home Depot or Rona or something.

This is the rivet gun I have.... works wonders too..

And the rivets are like 4 bucks for 100... I use 1/8 rivets too.

ohh btw, I only found 2 fittings and they are on the way...

They are very cheap! If you have a Harbor Freight Tools, they sell them w/ lots of rivets for ~$10. You might a need to spend little bit more if you go to the big hardware stores (ie Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, etc.). Its a tool you'll use sparingly so I wouldn't invest too much in it.

Or you can just paint them wink.gif. Black rivets are nice, but they are tad more expensive and not too commonly found (compared with regular auliminum).

One thing i hate: the riveter kick-back. If you're not careful, it will scratch your case or the black rivet. That's why I prefer plain-jane rivets and then i just paint the case. Also, why I really don't like disassembling the case wink.gif
