Hood Latch Rivets

Does anyone know where I can get a couple of shoulder rivets for the hood latch on my 52 F1. They are a 5/16 shoulder rivet that are used on the pivot of the latch and the lever.

Thanks

I don't recall anyone ever asking that here before. Maybe ND Bill
would know if there are any. I am thinking ya may have to have
them made for you. I think Ross or others will chime in.

Hmmmm.... You could probably make one from a bolt, this is all I could find. A bag of 50 may not cost a bunch, or you may be able to get a "sample"....

Yes Ross I would prolly try modifying a soft bolt with a bench grinder or if lucky a lathe. Than heat it red hot and rivet it down. I bet it would take me a few tries to get
it tight but not to tight. Sounds like a fun project to do. Several ways to do it.

Thanks, they are available but getting the small amount required is hard. Normally McMaster Carr has everything but I don't see these. I will make something out of a 5/16 shoulder bolt. The only reason I am replacing them is at one time my latch was chromed and I need to drill out the old rivets so I could strip the old chrome off.
