You're welcome Marek, it's a time and motion thing, used to set hundreds of the things fitting skins to the van trailers I built in times gone by.

Of course you are right Marek. To be really fair solid rivet is the better term for the ones I was struggling with. This guy is using countersunk rivets, where I struggle single handed is where I want dome on both sides. When I was working in the marine industry we always knocked the broken "nail" out of the centre of the pop rivet as they are usually steel and corrode badly in the salt air environment, then you have to get them out of where they are! There are varieties of "pop" rivets, both material s of the rivet itself and nail, and whether the back end is open or closed.I always used the word blind for the ones with no opening on the inside. Useless fact, a 3/16 monel pop rivet properly pulled has a sheer strength of 1960 pounds. Don't try pulling monel rivets with the type of rivet gun you have, you need lazy tongs.

Looks really good Marek. Being England, have you thought about some drain holes?
If you are going to be doing lots of the rivets one of these toos while being expensive saves a lot of time and makes life very easy

I mount the whole pedal assembly on a plate which then bolts into the car with multiple mounting holes. Pedal with master cylinder then flex braided line back to the caliper for the brake, and throttle with all it's bits and bowden cable back to the carb. I make my base plate from what ever is handy. Ply, alloy plate or?
