Hi to all...I'm a newby to your site and have a question about the above. I've found what I believe to be a good deal on this 5r.

I have concerns on the Alumium exterior. H/R has used "pop-rivets" to attach the outer skin . I would like to hear if any owners/friends of owners have experienced any problem with the outer skin.

Thanks in advance

We have a 2001 27sks Alumascape TT with the rivets and no problems. Had a 97 or 98 before with no problems.

Good luck.
