We now have a tool to send with our wicker bill for a small charge. You can also make yourself.

video uploads are easy Just use {u2b} you tube letters here {/u2b} use brackets [] instead of the {}.

Hopefully it work, lol
I ordered this same tool the "Astro 1427" and was clearly defective I ended up returning it as the preinstalled M8 mandrel would not spin. I was finally able to tap out the mandrel -this should just drop in place as you can see the internal holes are poorly machined/ not concentric.

I ended up getting this one from Amazon, much better. Also came with some different size rivets which allowed me to make adjustments to get a better estimate of the compression needed so It would compress the rivet in one stroke. It did not come with a plastic case. Hit or miss with Chinese quality.

I bought the same one as Chip4. It worked well, you just have to be careful not to screw the shaft too far into the rivnut. You can deform the spoiler if you collapse the rivnut too much. This happened on my first rivnut but I quickly adjusted and the rest went fine.
