Inner window felts hardware??

What hardware are you using to secure new inner window felts to the door panels? I tried some plastic rivets that failed. Aluminum rivets stuck out too far on the back side. I now have some small machine screws that might work. I was wondering what others are using.

I used rivets, i dont think there was any metal in the way when re-installed to interfere with fitment. You could also drill a new location if there is fitment issues.Did you try a shorter rivet?

1/4 inch self tappers. Take a couple quarters to the hardware store and grab a lifes worth.

I used large copper staples a few times, the kind you would find holding a large appliance box together. Works great,.... easy to remove if needed, will never rust, and will not interfere with anything when installed.
