You might want to add a power drill and drill index.
Where would you recommend an affordable power drill for a poor college freshman such as myself in the US?

What are riveters useful for exactly?

Sorry not sure about the power drill. I have yet to purchase my own. I just borrow my moms cuz she lives a few doors down. :P

THe riveters are useful for taking apart your chassis and being able to put it back together. :) You might want to disassemble the whole thing if you are going to paint it.

:P
