Replacing drybox strap
Our drybox had the internal wire/strap fail that keep the lid from opening too much, it props it open. Recretec sent me a new wire and rivets to use to secure it. This means drilling out the old riverts, and using the same thing that failed once secured with rivets without any sort of gasket. I don't really want to do this. My experience riveting is not something I picture ending up waterproof.
I'd like to replace it with a strap, and ideally do it without replacing the rivets. Any ideas on how I could secure it to the existing rivet ends?
