It is easy to "set" the correct brass rivets using just a center punch with the head supported on just a piece of steel plate or your shop anvil, they will flatten out just right.
No sir. The the data plates and the mounting panel are original to the jeep. I only had to purchase replacement pop rivets (since I drilled out my original ones for the data plate restore). I need to do some searching for some flush mount pop rivets.
I ended up taking my carb to the local mechanic for the rebuild since he is the expert...also because he has a glass bead blaster so he was able to REALLY clean out the crud in the carb I bought off FB (and there was A LOT of crud).
I picked it up about 20min ago on the way home from work. The plan is to install it sometime this evening (if I don't get called out). I am waiting on my new hard fuel lines to arrive. Once those get here I can throw them on and hopefully rock & roll.
Here are a few before/after pictures of the carb
