Reviews of kit car rivets
Kit car rivets are just one of the fasteners used to assemble your car. Building your kit car is a project of passion. Doing it right the first time with the best materials available is the goal of most builders. One of the fasteners used to build your kit car is rivets. Kit car manufacturers don’t make rivets and often supply old technology, “me too” rivets with their kits. Even worse, they save a few pennies and buy imported Chinese crap rivets. Why would any builder subject their expensive kit car investments to old technology, often poor quality imported kit car rivets.
When reviewing kit car rivets and their respective suppliers you may find a few choices. The first is the kit car suppliers with Factory Five being one of the popular choices. Well the kit car rivets you may get from Factory five will most likely be old technology and probably Chinese imports. But hey, they’re selling you kit cars and may not have the interest to provide newer technology fasteners. That brings us to the best, and newest technology rivets to use for assembling your factory five car kits is aDP Rivet’s Ultimate multi grip rivets. They are available in 1/8″ and 3/16″ diameter and they are extremely easy to use and provide very durable results. These Ultimate multi grip rivets were developed for “walking metal fatigue” which is caused when metal panels are fastened to rigid frames and is subjected to vibrations and/or flexing often caused by roads. Their initial test applications were Highway maintenance vehicles, trailers, mobile sign trucks, livestock trailers and race cars. Their durability proved to be so far beyond the other brands of “me too” rivets, the test logs were ended after three years of data with the original Ultimate Rivets still holding tight. This manufacturer has over 3000 customer feedback reviews and consistently ranks at the highest rating.
For example: our 1/8″ diameter Ultimate Rivets will clamp the kit parts together ranging in thickness from 1/16″ to 3/8″ which covers all you material thickness ranges. Plus, they completely fill slightly over-sized holes so if you need to re-drill for better alignment of the panels it’s OK with Ultimate Rivets.
Ultimate Rivets not only fill over-sized holes, their nails will never stick out after setting which is a valuable feature. They also form with a much wider upset shape on the back or blind side which enhances the joint strength and overall body strength of the car.
The 3/16″ diameter clamps and holds tight with 1,000 pounds of power, which really holds your kit car together well. Another advantage realized with using aDP Rivets is you only need two sizes, rather than the four or more kit car rivets which come with typical kit car purchase.
You can also get these Ultimate Rivets in colors to blend in and become part of the car, rather than just fasteners. Reviewing kit car rivets and their respective suppliers doen’t get any easier than selecting aDP Rivet as your source. Their products, service and enhanced technology are superior and confirmed by the over 3000 customer comments.
