Has anyone used these and painted over them? We're you happy with the end result? Any pictures? Greg

I tried them but found they look nothing like rivets.

Vinyl stick on rivits
Here are just a couple of examples of the stick on rivits
For me I cut my own, so have a choice of sizes to suit
Because the rivit is cut with a sharp blade it has square sides and is flat
To get the best results you will need to apply more paint
The paint builds on the flat surface easier than the sharp edge, the more paint the bigger the dome
I have tried the wet rivits, but found it difficult to get the same precision that I get with vinyl
Mind you if I just need to do a repair, then I use the wet they get the height straight away

Check out the Hirobo stick on rivets. They look good when done.

Another good idea is the rivet tape which you can buy. I've seen the results of that system on a friends Long Ranger and they also looked very good.

Best of luck with your project!
