    Coloured rivets

    Hi I have been looking at purchasing blue RAL 5015 rivets (3.2mm dia x 8mm long i.e. standard LB fitment) to match my Chardonnet colour chassis due in a few weeks. Only problem is there is a min order qty of 1000off which is way more than I need. If anybody is building / awaiting delivery / planning a similar colour chassis and might be interested in splitting the batch or taking some rivets please PM me asap.

    Thanks

    G

    Hi Gerry,
    I guess ordering a specific RAL match is always going to be expensive.
    Have you tried looking at sign makers supplies?
    Signal blue is fairly close to the Opel blue which is one of the Chardonnet colours.

    Thanks John
    I've done a fair bit of googling etc, including sign maker suppliers, and larger (4.8 dia) longer coloured rivets seem readily available but I've only found 2 suppliers that can provide 3.2 dia. Both are similar price.
    Did you have a specific supplier/s in mind?
    Cheers G

    I've not ordered stuff for twenty years so doubt my info would be up to date. I can try and find out for you.

    Hi John
    Sorry for slow reply. Hectic few days.
    Thanks for your offer of help but I'm beginning to go cold on the idea anyway.
    Cheers G

    Hi Gerry

    FWIW I have the same colour blue on my car and have used either plain aluminium or under the front clip - where visible - black. The black ones work well with the blue.
