Default Dzus Fasteners Over Paint?

Hey all, I'm having my Harwood hood and some touch up work done Saturday. This is my first lift-off hood. Are you all riveting in your fasteners on top of new paint? It seems to me this would be the only way to do it. If anyone knows of a way to prevent me from scratching the shit out of new paint, please share. Thanks in advance.

Get some 2" tape on the fastener, take a brand new razor blade

and carefully cut around the Dzus button protector.

The tape should protect the paint.

The paint is ALL Kosmoski Kandies and Pearls

Just be careful.

I did it by myself with no protection on my whole car.

It is an Altered, probably 18 -24 total Dzus buttons and the round protectors.

The whole car is painted in Kosmoski Kandies and Pearls.

Just Be Careful!

Your Pal, Gary
