      The riveter kit includes several sizes of rivets - what was the size needed for the Challenger?
      I just ordered these:
      Amazon.com: 25 Nylon Blind Rivets 3/16" Chrysler 6500898: Home Improvement

      I am unsure if they are the right size. However, I will be receiving them by Friday and will report back if these are the correct size.
      The problem is that the kit has about 10 that are flat head and 10 that the head is not flat and you want the flat head rivets.

      Th kit comes with 40 rivets. Problem is that the large ones wont fit. The smaller versions fit...however, on the areas behind the wheel well you dont want to use the rivets with the acorn head (I am not a plastic rivet specialist so if anyone knows the difference in terminology of the head style on rivets please share...) . The "acorn head" rivet sticks out a bit too much...and will not allow the wheel well to lay flat...You want the flat ones as shown in picture.

      Harbour freight has that same one I bought when I did all of mine in hydro dipped carbon fiber. Like you said not a easy job at all. Great right up.
