How I started counting rivets….
I really like natural metal schemes and became a big fan of Allclad paint because of their color range and drying time. Then one day I ran across Mike Grant’s website and saw he was offering rivets as a decal sheet. I hadn’t had much luck with the rivet tools, so I thought I’d give them a try. This is the first project I built just to see how they worked, and I have since become a good customer for this product. The procedure can get tedious at times, and yes I have literally counted rivets occasionally, but I like the results.
