Re: 1969 k10

There was some consideration to procuring a rivet squeezer and re attaching this bracket as it came. Unfortunately, due to access, we'd have had to remove the adjacent cross member...which meant grinding and replacing upwards of 20 rivets. Heat and a hammer always seemed like a bad idea. My understanding was that the factory protocol for a bad rivet was to replace it with a grade 8 bolt. So if for no reason other than common sense, we are going to adopt that protocol as well.
