That was using polysulphide rubber sealant which is not a true structural adhesive and can cause problems with the rivet grip. A hard adhesive should have good results if preparation is correct. Preparation in a home shop may be an issue.4) I've read (unsubstantiated?) opinions that adhesive will cause the rivet effectiveness to decline significantly, since it provides a soft mushy layer that reduces the grip strength of the rivet and hastens the day when they rattle loose. Any thoughts on that?
