Shelby-At-Large Posted March 26, 2012 Report Share Posted March 26, 2012 The guy that will install my scoop has never installed rivets & is nervous about it, so he's suggesting we install using nuts and bolts type. He's worried about not putting the rivets in straight, likes the install control that n 'n' bs offer, & trying to avoid the shifting that can occur & damage stripes. I know the fasteners will have to be aluminum, but so far I haven't found any that look good enough for the car. For me personally I'd like something that matches the silver stripes of my '08 Vista Blue GT, and is more low-key. - Anybody have any ideas for alternatives to rivets? I'll take all ideas at this point, though I do like how subtle the original rivets are. - Has anyone had any trouble widening the holes on their scoop? Just in case I find a nice fastener with a little larger diameter. - Anything we should know? We're aware that the hood consists of two layers, and we do have the install guide/instructions. Thanks for your help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
