    I have a white trailer here with white rivets and black vinyl. What kind of paint do I use to paint a few rivets? Thank you!

    Depending on the rivets we use vinyl. Or paint markers. Or One Shot. Or Krylon. Or....

    You can get nail polish with UV blockers added. That way during the slow times you can do some self-care, pampering.

    We usually use whatever spray paint we can get close to the color. They disappear after that. We have bought custom colors before upon request, but normally the selection is pretty good.

    What type of rivets do you have?
    most of the time with cast and pop rivets, you cover them with the vinyl.

    if we have to use paint, just make sure it is the same finish as the vinyl
    Gloss = Gloss
    Matte = Matte
    This will help if there is a slight color shift
