    The best pop guns by far are made by gesipa, you should be able to get rivets in small quantities from ebay.

    Is it for the 007 seatbox ?

          Tip for you if you cant get anodised rivets, get your standard ali rivet, and put the shank in a drill. Then using a nail file or other fine abrasive, spin the drill and slghtly roughen the flat face of the ali rivet. That way when the rivet is set in place, you can touch up with some black enamel as it will be keyed to take the paint.

          If you tell me what size rivets you need ( diameter and length) I will have root in the garage and fire you a few over if I have them, save you having to buy a boxfull.

          Also, if you are fixing into anything that is not metal, you will need a washer for the rivet as you pul it up, otherwise it will expand the material and eventually crack.....I know this after nearly losing a wing on a westfield I used to have at 80mph .

                Mine only had 120 bhp, and nearly killed me several times. I was taken out in a full carbon lighweight with a busa engine, now that is brown trouser stuff. Are you serious in thinking 80 is hard work for something like a westfield/caterham etc..?
