hi guys

I am having trouble finding suitable fixings to put the spoiler back onto my si, I drilled the 2 rivets out to remove it earlier in the year. now it is time to put it back on Ford say that they dont sell the rivets anymore!!

any ideas of what i can use in place of them, preferably screws but what would i screw into?

cheers Neil

the hole in tailgate is way too big for a normal pop rivet, the ones I drilled out had some sort of collar on them but Ford dont sell them anymore :-(

only thing i can think of is a riv-nut but i haven't got the tool to insert them.

surely I'm not the first to have this problem :-(

about 8-10mm i think, to big for a rivet to go straight in.

i've tried some of those expanding plastic nuts but as they are round they just turn as i screw the self tapper in :banghead:
