    I am looking to get some black rivets - Anyone know of a hardware store I can get them at? If not, a good internet site?

    Thanks

    Thanks Verell - I have found black rivets by searching google.com

    I was just hoping to find them locally so that I could get them sooner!

    Spray paint may be the way to go - Thanks!

    That link didn't work for me by the way.

    Can you tell us what are you trying to do?

    When you find them, can you post the source?

    Not sure if this will help but if you check the midyear corvette suppliers (www.licorvette.com) dash panel side tab mounting rivets were black (almost an anodized-like finish). When "plunger" is broken off during application exposed end is silver. May have some spares at home if anyone would like a picture?

    Instead of buying Eastwoods blackining stuff I use my gun blueing solution.

    Works killer.

    Won't work on aluminum or stainless

    Sorry about the link. You'll have to search the Eastwood site.
