Default Re: 1936 Pick up tail gate rivets

G.M., If I was to use the Fillister head screws for the tail gate hinges, I would have to have their nuts located on the inside of the tailgate. While loading goods, the nuts would create damage to the merchandise while the freight was slid across the nuts. A properly peaned over rivet on the inside of the tailgate would make more sense. A rivet with a Fillister type head could be made. Which is correct? I am leaning toward a round headed rivet properly peaned over on the inside of the tailgate. What is correct? I have the means to make anything.
