    Noob looking for rub rail reinstallation advice

    So for my first post I'll annoy you guys with something that seems to be over-discussed here...yet I'm still unable to find the answer I need lol.

    I bought myself an '03 1300R. It was in immaculate shape with the exception of the foot mats, so I ordered up some Hydro Turf and went to work with the adhesive remover and scrapers. With the help I found in the forum, I was able to successfully get the rear rub rails and all the mats and glue removed cleanly (after about 8 hours worth of work over the period of a week, DAMN!).

    Tonight I'll be installing the new Turf and I'm not 100% on how I want to go about reinstalling the rub rails. I have a rivet gun and rivets, but I like the idea of the stainless steel hardware a little more. I've read that you guys are using screws as one option and nuts/bolts as another. If I were to go with the screw option, are you guys screwing straight into the fiberglass? What size screws are you using?

    Well it turns out the pop-rivets worked great. Finished it up this afternoon. Hoping the weather holds up so I can take her out this weekend.
