Hi guys.  New fulltimer here with '70 eagle bus conversion. I need to repair my roof and some of the rivets on the side of my bus. What specifically is the type of rivet I need to use to replace the bad rivets on the roof and what is the best sealant to use. Also the roof was raised and the metal strap that covers a seam(running horizontal)has rivets that have come loose(when it gets hot and the strap expands and buckles). Is there a structural type rivet or stronger rivet I should use there?

Thanks for your help

Hi there Ron & Ginny,

Welcome to the group!  We have lots of riveting discussions on this board, as well as discussions about rivets.   Grin

Please try the search function to catch a few of the previous rivet discussions to get started, and hopefully one of our members will respond to your rivet question in the interim.

Folks, any suggestions for Ron & Ginny on their rivet question?

Good to have your here!  Best Regards, Phil
