Yep, most air tools do not come with the fittings... you need to pick up some screw-in male end quick connect fittings and install them in your riveter.

Use a 1.5" long piece of teflon sealing tape (be careful to wrap it the right way), and be careful when you buy the fittings - there are two kinds, one is "universal" and the other is an "automotive shop" style (has a wider sealing surface). Get the universal type. Home Depot has them, but they are 1/3 the price at Harbor Freight. Buy lots, you'll end up needing them! :rolleyes:

Oh yeah - be sure to mark all the AL panel seam overlaps and frame tube locations before you remove the panels! And do all your frame updates/mods/painting before you pop the first rivet. You'll thank yourself later.
