RDS had them as did LR West Chester I think I bought 2 bags from both. I paid 35 cents or so each and had to buy by the bag (I forget maybe 50 to a bag???) UK might work too as shipping would probably be cheap but make sure to get genuine.

edit: 50 to a bag

George sells them for 50cents each

http://www.roversdownsouth.com/body.htm very last thing on the bottom. PN 78248

Uk is expensive, but, they list the size (which I have seen elsewhere as 35mm)

Sealed pop rivet 3/16" x 9/32" long.

This seems the closest from mcmaster:

I can't remember if the mandel on the rover ones is alum or steel. This one is alum.

Do you mean for the pop rivets or this kind?

I'm going to need some of these for the roof work. Anyone have a good source for these (and the tools)?

Thanks Ron. I'm pretty sure they are all aluminum after drilling out a gazillion of them :D

I think I'll go with mcmaster on this since this is for my trailer and I can't bring myself to spend 50c on each. I'll likely need a couple of different depths but this gives me a great start, thanks!

I used 3/16s all over mine and it's a close match. Charles, for your project I wouldn't worry about an exact match IMHO.

Agreed. Doesn't hurt getting the right sizes if I can though (and would like the use those big solid ones on parts of the roof).

I have a hand pop riveter as well as a air based one (which seemed to jam too easy last time I used it). Those big headed solid ones require a tool thats like a punch with a hollowed out end that you strike to compress the rivet.

Rivet gun from sears. Hand operated. I use a block of wood under the handle to squeeze it as the rover ones are hard to pull through.

Charles,

Get them from McMaster Carr 3/16" domed, rivets. Here is the link again http://www.mcmaster.com/#closed-end-...rivets/=62cfey I have used LR rivets and these and the only difference is the LR ones cost more. Remember LR buys them like you and me. They don't make them. They are nothing special. Make sure you get aluminum rivet with aluminum mandrel. Measure the thickness of the material your using but most likely 1/4" to 3/8" grip range. Don't pay the big money. $11. per box of 100

I have rivets in genuine parts packaging that have steel mandrels. They give alot more compression between the peices being joined. Sometimes the alloy-mandreled ones break off before the two pieces are even touching. Though to be fair that is what I usually buy anyway.
