    Greetings guys

    In short, I want an Oakley Stretchline display case.

    Problem is, due to my geographic location, I'm not going to be able to buy one as there are none available.

    Therefor my only option is to have one made.

    Can anyone out there help me find the rivet bolts?????

    Having the steel parts fabricated and put together shouldn't be a problem

    but nothing can happen until i source a supplier for those elusive rivet bolts

    And from what i can see, there are close to 100 of them on the Stretchline display

    Cheers guys

    When I have done some of my custom stuff I used carriage bolts.. cheap and has the smooth rounded head on it. I used the galvanized kind because they are a more aluminum looking color.

    Morning, Colonel. I wouldn't drive myself absolutely batsh!t crazy trying to source OEM or identical aftermarket rivet bolts...and I am the obsessive sort to start out with. As long as you won't be making, marketing, or selling this as a genuine Oakley display case, customize it to your taste! (Reference Qtrain's post above. All custom work).

    Make it yours, make it cool, enjoy the hell out of it!

    And welcome to the community!
    :)
