I would think you'd want photos of the OUTSIDE, not the inside, to see what the rivets look like, no? Anyway, I can't help since the rivets are already out on mine--sorry. But look here for some idea of what others have posted:

Good luck.

Thanks Scott. Reason for the odd request is that there are several different types of rivets and I wanted to get as close to factory as possible. I plan on including 4 rivets with each plate sold.

On a side note, 10 plates are being made as a sample run, 5 of each. Hopefully all goes well! I'll let you know when I get my hands on them, but it should be as soon as a week or two.

Got it. Didn't mean to question the logic--just didn't follow.

I was at Larry Buskirk's shop in Novato this week and saw a box, so I took these, in case they help. Good luck!

Looks like a generic pop-rivet from the inside.

variations

You got me curious so i Googled rivets and learned that there are a bunch of different types. Interesting, I guess, but the standard domed head is probably what we're all gonna need.

Not a problem. Just add me to your list if they come out nice. I've been knocking around the idea of polishing and etching my plate myself if it came down to it.

I just approved the tooling today for production.

(provided that they come out decent)
: For this batch of 10, it looks like pricing will be ~$43.00 + shipping (~$5 USA) per plate. This will also include 4 rivets.

I'll sell the batch of 10 on here and then when I do the big order, I'll probably do an eBay store thing or something.

More details to come.

Just thought of this: Are the plates the same dimensions for Spiders and GTVs? I would assume so but one never knows. Want me to measure?

Can't wait to see the results. Count me in for one "2000"!

Should be identical, I sent the vendor 3 different plates for dimension purposes and they were all identical, 1750 and 2000. Looks like they are about 3.151" x 9.585".

If it turns out good, I will take a 2000 also.
Mine is all rubbed out.

If the 2000 plate is indistinguishable from the original, count me in for one.
