faux rivet strips

hi all,
I am trying to get a airstream rivet look to my 1980 's uhaul trailer. it is looking really nice painted in aluminum silver.does anyone know of any faux rivets that could be applied to the skin .perhaps they come pre lined on an adheisive strip.it seems I had seen a trailer like this before with faux rivets?
thanks,
coffeejohn

These people sell all kinds of graphics, from bullet holes to barbed wire. At the bottom of the link they say to contact them if you have a specific graphic you want. I am not connected to the site or know anything about them.

I don't know where you can buy them, but I know how I'd make them.

I'd go get some Candy Dots, those little colored sugar treats that come on a sheet of paper, slather paper and candy up with Vasoline, and make an RTD mold of them. Then I'd use Bondo to make little rivet-shaped domes, paint them aluminium-color, and glue them on with a dot of epoxy.

At Home Depot or Lowes they sell wooden buttons that are used to plug up holes in trim.

Here is how they are normally used: You drill a hole, put the screw to fasten the trim then put the wooden plug in the hole to make it appealing.

Anyway, Paint them the color U want and Glue them on.
