Default TCS Rivets/Tool for firewall gutter

Does anyone know if the rivets and tool are still available in this old thread? I tried sending a message a few days ago through this site, but just checked, and it apparently didn't go through. The Nova Research email has also been disabled according to that site. Thanks

In case you want to "roll your own"

Made mine on a CNC mill using an old transfer punch, but a lathe may work.

The rivets I got from my local TrueValue hardware store in the Hillman stuff:

I made a tubular rivet tool out of an old punch on a lathe too. I also made a fitting to go in this rivet tool to get to areas where a punch was too big and you couldn't use a hammer to peen over the rivet.
