Wondering what tools do you use for riveting?
you must be referring to one of the guys who've offered help to me. I'm using a homemade bucking tool in an automotive air hammer and a giant piece of brass for a bucking bar. These gentlemen are doing it with the appropriate tooling.

this is the new ID tag Rick G made, I mounted on the opposite side of the inner transom
my outside plates are still there but the logos are gone. Would love some vinyl feathers. I'm sure I'll be getting a new id tag as well eventually. Looks really nice. Will be too nice for my boat actually.
I have a new set of corner brackets I got from bruceter quite a few years ago. But I've changed the transom thickness and needed to modify them a little so I decided to try on my old set first. My old set was missing a few chunks and have a few extra holes in them. They will clean up pretty good, and I can put that hole back in that was cut off..

wow! Those look great! Will definitely finish it off nicely! I haven't worked for over a year and am putting this boat together with 0 budget. It may take some time but I would love to purchase some of your work.

Reproductions are available...
I suspect that the originals were actually red when new.
I had a half of a tag like that at one point I remember. It was a sticker and was mostly peeled off. In an old post of mine on here I found it had 52033 on it and the 35hp 6 persons etc. Can't find the piece of tag but I'm not the type to throw that away.
