Anyone in SoCal have a wicker bill installed on their spoiler?

My wicker bill came in for the Z28 spoiler I have installed on my 5th gen. My dilemma has been trying to find someone with a 8mm rivet gun/tool. For some reason, most of the bodyshops I've went to in the SFV and Southbay areas don't seem to have one, which is surprising....

I can order the tool from Amazon/Ebay but I feel it's pointless for something I'm only gonna utilize once. So I'm here to see if anyone of you guys installed this on your own and have that tool. If so, would you wanna make a little cash and/or help a brotha out? I'm in the SFV and don't mind driving anywhere in the LA/IE/OC. I just wanna put this damn thing on lol.

A lot of auto parts stores let you borrow or rent tools. You could try that.

Yup, already tried. No luck there either.

I have a wicker bill but no rivet tool. If you bought from ZL1 you can drive there and have them put it on. That's what I did at least! btw 305 to 310, I'm assuming you used to live in Miami. I used to live in Kendall.

Didn't buy it from them. I ended up making the tool with the help of that DIY thread above. And yeah bro, I was in Miami . North Miami Beach to be exact.

I had my wicker on the oem spoiler and now installed it on the z28 replica one. Looks great, i didn't need a tool i just used a DIY tutorial to guide me. Figured why spend money on a tool I could easily make with a nut & bolt.
