Plastic rivet gun/setter - KY

Hey guys,

I need to borrow or buy a plastic rivet setter to put the front bumper cover/pad back on the main bumper.
I'm willing to give $25 just to borrow one or $35 to buy one.

Thanks,

Brian

Home Depot or Lowes...

90 day return policy IIRC.

Harbor Freight has one for $13 and it works great, I picked one up to put the front license plate back on.

Edit - found it

Thanks for your help guys.
I went to Fastenal the other day, and they wanted $112 for one of those things!
(They must have a big mark up on all their products.)

The one at Harbor Freight looks like a great deal. It looks just like mine and I paid about 35-40 dollars off the tool truck for it. And it works great, but those plastic rivets are all it can work with.

You must have the location in your thread title. Fixed it this time.

I bought the plastic rivet gun at Harbor Freight for $14.50 and it works like a charm. Wish I could say the same about their spot weld removal tool.

Pretty good, Gomer. Still dealing with that pesky rule breaker.
