Hey there folks, I have a question. What kind of rivets do I need for my Trillium (blind I think)?? I'm going to replace my Belly-band in the next few week & need to replace a few. Also should I go with "stainless steel" or "Aluminum"?? Any other hints tricks or tips would be great before I start this.

Thanks for your help.

Paul

Is your belly band aluminum? Then use aluminum rivets. Stainless steel is OK too, but over the years bimetal ionic corrosion may take place between the nickel in the stainless and the aluminum band.
