How about cutting a short piece of steel tubing (like brake line tubing) that slides over the rivet nail. Use it as a nose extension on the rivet gun. I have done this in the past for an awkward spot…cheap and easy. Alternatively, drill a hole close to the end of a piece of narrow bar stock to use as a standoff. As long as the riveter can still get a grip on the nail, it should work.

I could send one of my adapters or the kit if you pay shipping both ways.

I have not used these type of nuts before.
I got Stainless, aluminum and steel.
I am using stainless machine screws, I worry that if i use stainless jack nuts that they may seize. but aluminum could strip and steel could rust.
Thoughts?

If you use stainless, use antiseize!
