And have a question. For those who have swapped these in the ' 89 to '95 models, do they require a special rivet installer, in other words a big one? reverses say your normal rivet installer? Just not sure of this little detail. I was hoping someone could shed some light on this for me.

They do take the 1/4" rivet not normally found in the backyard mechanics tool box. Body shops will have the tool and the rivets.

Or...you can just bolt it in instead of riveting. That's what I did.

Dale....Oh, ok... so then what kind of bolt and nut did you use? Did you have to use a somewhat of a flathead bolt and a nylon locking nut. Curious!

Was it stainless?

Jeff, I'll post some pictures of what I did and used tonight when I get home from work.
