Hand brake contact riveting

I am repairing the handbrake contact on 69 911. Looking for tips on installing the rivets that hold the contact. Reference items 8,9 and 10 parts. Space is very tight with the pivot bushing in the way.

How have others installed these Copper rivets?




Thanks!

David

A different handle should be easy to find.

my advice is that if you have it all out, may as well do your heater cables and possible e-brake cables...

I’ll probably just make a mandrel to drive the rivets in.

Use a pop rivet or a cherrymax of the proper dimension.

Bucking bar and rivet driver

I made a bucking bar and rivet driver to match the shape of the rivet head.
Worked well.
