98 s70 fender replacement?

Postby RobTheModd » 03 Feb 2012, 20:24

Ok soooo I managed to remove a 70 fender in under 6 minutes yesterday.


Now my question is simple.
How do I put it back on correctly without using the rivets...
Volvo wants 1.50 ea, so its not too bad but id rather not go the 40 minutes to get them...

Can I use any specific rivet that just so happens to be the same (that I can pick up at lowes or ace hardware)
Zip ties im sure would work for the fender liner, but not sure about for the mud flap.




Need to re attach the wheel well, and the front mud flap.
Thanks.

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.

In other words you don't.
You need rivits
I've seen some (bumpers) that were screwed on but it's always a hachet looking job
