Default Re: what tool do I need to install hood corners

This is the split rivet tool I used. It is a bit tricky but eventually I learned how to get them to look right with the ends curved down in the back.

The clamp thing like Tin Cup described is what I am looking for the tubular rivets or I may have to make something out of a c-clamp. Or I may do a split rivet temporarily until getting to an airplane place or something.
