We sometimes use clecos in our shop for alignment of parts that are going to be spot welded if the material is too thin and we can't use our usual method. I'm guessing you use them to lineup aluminum panels on the frame before riveting?

oh and ill be installing small #6 bolts for the final assembly, i was thinking bout rivets but this plastic cracks very easy, bolts are safer.
You can use washers under the head of rivets when you want to secure plexi. Works quite well.

Nice project!

And negative. I know what clecos are too ;)

They are used a lot in holding automotive body panels and etc prior to welding.
