Nothing odd about that "Rivet Strip." Double sheathed cars often had metal Batten strips along the sides in different location to help keep the sheathing tight against the frame. Sunshine did four versions of this kit, with and without the Batten strip and with both wood and steel doors. Sunshine also offered an interior kit showing the interior sheathing going up about 2/3 and where it ended the steel framing is then visible against the exterior sheathing.
