Curious why you didn't replace the rivet/shaft while you had it apart. Effort vs reward?
rivet was not worn, and I didn't want to peen a made rivet. They are blind in the track and must be put in the track before connecting to the cross bar
There is also a gap between the rivet and channel (makes it pretty hard to beat the tang over onto the crossbar)
I held the rivet up with a washer to seat it properly then plug welded it and slid the washer out. I thought this was the least invasive method
Great work Rick, its one thing that I am now looking at as when my pop top opened when trailering for a rego check recently it broke the nylon wheels on the rear scissor, there is always something to be done when you own a Kombi, cheers Greg
