Rivet sizes

Getting ready in a few weeks to have to reassemble the rear tub of the 110. So what size rivets are used for the cappings etc...?

They seem bigger than 3/16" for the ones that attach the cappings and show on the outside of the body.

All the rivets all the same for all of the cappings vertical including?

Thanks for the help.

All the rivets on the cappings are the same. I used the land rover genuine rivets. I got a huge bag from one of the vendors.

The head size on the 3/16 is just about the same as the factory. If you are using it for the capping you may want to find sealed rivets as they will not leak. Of course if you are painting over them it might not matter.
