Yes they are pop rivets
The pop rivets holding the winders in are actually pop rivets.
They are called a trifold or multi-grip dependant on manufacturer.
The mandrel cuts the body of the rivet into three sections as it is drawn in by the rivet tool.
The rivets used on the doors are 6.4mm (1/4") and only source for small quantities (3 or 6 or so) is Ford spares.
Normally, smallest quantity from fastener distributors is 100.
(about $1.00 ea from Ford and about 25c ea in qty of 100).
The only real issue is the pop-rivetter itself as tools that would do 1/4" rivets are usually priced in the $100s of dollars.
Total Tools did have a large handle type rivetter for around $55 and these were OK for this type of task but they seemed to have run out of stock in most of their stores.
To get a quantity of these rivets contact Textron (Rowville), ask for Ford door rivets, they will advise the partnumber, they will advise of a distributer in your area, contact the distributer and order the rivets thru them.
