Riveting

hey anyone in here know how to rivet? I want to take apart my new fmf exhaust to have to thermal coated gloss black but not sure how to rivet it back together. I am pretty sure I have a rivet gun somewhere in my dads garage but never done it. I know how to take them off but i usually just replaced them with screws. any info will help thanks. BTW if anyone wants an FMF exhaust for the 06 10r let me know I got an extra Ti for sale $500 brand new still in box I had to buy two to get the good deal lol.PM me if interested

cherry max or any aircraft grade are best due to the anti corrosion properties and higher tensil strength

you need to be sure they are of the same material as the metal you are using them on. This will ensure minimal corrosion, for some reason aluminum and steel just don't do well together.

Just get the aluminum ones from home depot/ lowwes. Get the size that the hole is, ie 3/16 (which it probably is)
