40 minutes vs the life of the car?
Mount up and head for town, man!
Seriously - Keep it stock. The stock rivets are coated in black plastic
and are going to last longer, be a precise fit and keep it looking good.
I did the same job last year and it looks factory today. Money well spent.
I also got a handful of spares. Ya never know...
And if you can give it a few days and need any other parts, that price
does seem pretty steep. You could add them to an order from a more
reasonable source like DW or Tasca. Plenty of places to get these.
