    Riveting Lug Brackets to Blank Rear Rim

    On my LA, I have one rim 8"x24"which is rusted out but still have the tire on it and holding air. I have a new blank rim and a set of lug brackets to make me a new rim for my LA. Everything is measured and drilled, my rivets arrived today.

    Does anyone have any experience of riveting the brackets to the rim? I am open to suggestions.
    My plan is to use my hydraulic 20 ton press to squeeze the rivets.

    My rivets are 7/8" long x 7/16" dia. The thickness of the brackets and rim material is 1/4". I need to cut down my rivets. Any ideas how much rivet material should I be pressing?

    Update

    UPDATE:

    Today I riveted the lug brackets to the rims. I am very pleased the results. I was able to use my free standing 20-ton press. The press did a nice job at squeezing out the steel rivets and flattening the rivets. Sure beat trying to hammer a 7/16" rivet and backing up the rivet.

    The red hot rivet idea sound good, I just did not have enough hands to tackle that procedure.
