Take some painters or masking tape and put 6-7 layers on your new rivet sets. The edges of new sets are extremely sharp and will make smiley faces easy. It can also damage your shiney new aluminum if you don't stay perpendicular to the skin. If you are careful on the removal of your original rivets a 1/8" rivet will be plenty. The rivets will swell to fill a little slop in the hole. And also the proper drill size for the 5/32 is a #21. I have no idea if you had these questions but I hope it helps.
Hey Brian, those are all great answers to questions I didn't even know I had! Thank you for the reply. I didn't want to open the bags of rivets in case I had to send them back, and that was depressing! But now I feel like I can go out to the garage and play around a little with my new tools!
