Riveting

My rivet tape arrived today. With about 1100 rivets to install on this PSC boxcar, I decided to try some rivet tape to speed things up. It "works a treat" as my British friends would say. Here are a couple of photos showing how it works. Basically it lets you pre-install the rivets, cover them with a special tape, and then rivet them at one sitting without having to stop each time to install another one.
