Default Landaui irons

I have a 30 cabroilet 68b that Iím redoing and top parts are a bear to find. My first issue is one of the landaui irons is a little sloppy. Any advice on how to split or correct. I see on a site that it can be sleeved. Any help is appreciated.
Also Iím considering chrome and will probably have to split to do so.

When I restored my 68B Landau irons I split them apart made a bushing and a new rivet out of stainless steel. After plating I
installed the rivet.

I have done the same as Randy, i make the new rivet real tight in one arm and not as tight in the other. you want arms to be snug when finished.

I squeezed the rivet in a press, and it tightened up sufficiently.
