This may be a silly one, but I just noticed that my kit came with two diff. sizes of 1/8th rivits. I am assuming the shorter ones are for sheet metal to sheet metal and the longer ones are for sheet metal to frame or areas where two pieces of sheet metal go to the frame. Is this correct?

Thanks!

Use the 1/8 th long ones on the aluminum to rd tubes and by the master cylinder aluminum. The short for aluminim to 3/4 in tubes and of course aluminum to aluminum

...And while you're buying extra rivets, buy a couple of #30 drill bits for your holes.

If the car eats bowties half as well as it has been eating drill bits I will be very pleased....lol.
