The sealey rivets will just about work as they appear to be a tiny bit bigger diameter so can be a bit of a mare to fit ,some holes were fine some I really struggled to get the rivet to slide in .The rivet gun is essential though or you are wasting your time.

Ok cheers folks. I’m still not keen on paying £25 to fit some rivets if I can avoid it! I kept some of the broken ones I removed so will see if they will fit in my father in laws gun.

I also broke the tangs off both reflectors (no surprise there!) but both seem to be sitting back in place so far. Not sure how long they’ll last though as they aren’t too secure!
