Buckets O' Rivets!

(Originally published July 3, 2008)

One of the great things about living in the Los Angeles area is the proximity of the movie studios and their resources. I picked up cast resin rivet heads from the Warner Bros Staff Shop in 3/4", 1" and 1 1/2" diameters. They cost 30 cents a piece, which is not cheap, but saves me the cost and time of having to make molds and cast them up.

They also had some large size bolt heads which were glued in place on the viewport ring along with the rivet heads.

The larger sized rivet heads were glued to the back wall with construction adhesive.
