    Just got a job to cover a box truck, frp panels, with these rivets or rivet covers. Can't remove them, so has anyone ever wrapped these before? They're about a 1 1/4 dia., plastic. Any ideas. How many you ask? Crap load. Staggered because they mounted some machinery inside the truck? Think about passing on it just because of the labor. Any ideas?

    If they are the big buttons dont think you can rollepro right over them because there air has no where to go...They arent like rivits where there is a whole row of them so the air just continues to travel down.

    Sure you can. Most rivets aren't air tight and the air escapes through the hole they reside in. Heat'em, roll'em, nice tight vinyl when finished;)

    You could go over them with primer94 if you believe an adhesion test is iffy.
