I am not certain, but believe that the rivet of choice is probably 1/8" aluminum pop rivets in white . . . it may be easier to purchase plain aluminum rivets then apply a little nail polish in a color that more closely matches the aged color of the vinyl-clad aluminum. My suggestion would be to contact Ace Fogdall RV in Cedar Falls, Iowa
and ask for Florence or Kristy in the parts department . . . while they no longer handle new Airstreams, they were a long-time Airstream dealer and I believe are now a factory authorized service center. Florence has been able to source many unusual parts for both my Argosy and Airstream . . . rivets should be something common that they will likely have in stock. They are probably the closest Vintage Airstream friendly parts/service source . . . they are about 5 hours from the Quad Cities or 6 hours from Madison, WI.
Good luck with your project!
