I used aluminium rivnuts, about 20 in the whole car. The alu thread is pretty soft, it has a tendency to catch if you're not too careful when threading in the bolt. That said, only one seized and spun irrecoverably. Oh well, converted to a stud with nut on the outside.

Also, I installed all of them without the special tool. I used a long M6 bolt with a nut on it, some washers, and a steel strip with a hole in it. I would thread the nut, washers, plate and rivnut on the bolt, insert the rivnut into its hole, clamp the plate to the chassis, then tighten the nut holding the bolt steady. The thread of 8.8 bolts and nuts would hold for installing 3-4 rivnuts before stripping, but that's ok. A stronger bolt would probably help.

Hi,
Now that I have cut the floor, I can come back on this thread.
I marked the drilling points on the ally plate, and it is clamped to the chassis.

But I was wondering, what is the right order ?
- drill
- unclamp
- Sikaflex
- rivets
or :
- Sikaflex
- clamp
- drill
- rivets

Thank you.

Hi, Drill all holes -unclamp- sikaflex- rivet, Cleco's are also very handy locating panels while drilling and fixing. Cheers Brendan.

You don't find many rivets in a wing it's 99.99% bolts.

You are joking of course rivets are used extensively throughout most aircraft both wing and fuz unless of course you are talking about composites and very modern aircraft .....if you are not joking then where do you get that figure from

Only bolts in the wing hold spar to fuselage and elevator to wing and also
flaps,boatload of cherry rivets hold the important bits on.
