Ok, you all must know about the door ajar switch located at the rear of the driver's door. Mine was broken off when I got the car. I bought a new one many months ago, but when I took the old one off, the nut behind it fell inside the body.
I've just found a the mounting plate for the door ajar switch at Bair's. I can see it's held in place by 2 rivets. Any suggestions for a tool to install the rivets in the body a this point? I've riveted new brake linings on my '29 chev, but that tool won't work here.

Depends on if you are concerned with it looking original.... If you don't really care, you can use a regular pop-rivet to hold it on. Prolly need to get long shank ones, like maybe a 5/16" or longer. If you want it to look "correct", the only option is to get the original type rivets, and either buy/borrow, or fabricate bucks to mash them down....
