dumb plastic rivets . . .
Just finished a small maintenance job on the FJR, and man, I have really had it with those fiddly OEM plastic rivets.
If anybody has any better options instead of the OEM rivets, I'd appreciate your input here. Even plastic rivets of a type that work better (and fit) would be an improvement.
I'm about ready to install nut plates behind the panels, everywhere the plastic rivets go now, and then use self-tapping or machine screws instead of the cheap plastic rivets.
All advice is welcome here.

P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.
