Hey guys, I am repacking my OEM exhaust tonight and I wanted to stop on the way home to get some rivits, but I don't know what size they are. Can anyone help me out?

The ritets are 3/16". They sell them in different lenths and 1/4", 3/8" or 1/2" will all work. You can also get Aluminum, Steel and Stainless. If you get the Stainless ones, be careful as they are very difficult to install with the standard "Off the Shelf" pop rivet gun. Most of the "Off the Shelf" guns will not work very long with stainless rivets. The aluminum rivets will do the job fine.

Wear safety glasses as the larger diameter rivets require much more tension to break the insertion stem and they can fly out the end of the rivet gun with maximum velocity (it's like being shot with a nail gun). I had one stick in my safety glasses one time. Your eye will not stop it but the bone will!!!!
