Rivet-nut questions

I ordered the rivet-nut gun from Northern tool, now I need to order rivet-nuts for my build.

Not exactly sure what size, type or material to order for the following areas.

NAS Frame
I am trying to find the size or part number of the rivet-nuts ( 3 per side ) that attach the under tub support bar to the frame.


Bulkhead (part number nn108021)
I believe they are 8mm and I assume steel. I am thinking the following ones would work but please correct me if I am wrong.
95105A191

Licenses plate (part number NN106021)
I would think they would be aluminum but not sure
M6 Aluminum,
94020A383
http://www.mcmaster.com/#94020a383/=7j2ge3


Are there any other styles or sizes that I should order?

The license plate ones are steel from the factory. They suck, err, rather, they suck when you use something other than plastic screws. Given how few there are on the truck, I just ordered genuine ones from RN all were in stock and only the big ones on the bulkhead were more than a dollar or so.

Seems like aluminum on aluminum would be better than going with aluminum on steel for the lic plate? Am I missing something?

Do you happen to have the part number of the ones that attach the under tub support to the frame or a size?

I use aluminum in aluminum, and steel in steel. I purchase all my rivnuts through an ebay seller called HomePro.

My favorite things to have rivnutted:

1) Beverage holder on my tuffybox console. (so much easier to remove the tunnel cover now)
2) Parking Brake handle mounting bolts.
3) Jump Seat floor bolts.

I love rivnuts.

I use 1/4 20 aluminum rivet nuts to install plates on the ROW trucks. I have been buying the cheap assortment box from Harbor Freight

The tool I purchased from northren is metric so I will have to go with metric but it looks like Aluminum wins for the plate.

Anyone happen to know the size or part number of the ones that go in the frame to hold the under tub support bar

I picked up mine from Harbor Freight it was about $15.00 and came with rivnuts and multiple tips/sizes. The replacement rivnuts are $10 each specific size pack you want.
