Just make sure you use aluminum rivets, Lowes, Home Depot, etc have them, and stainless steel, I don't personally think there would be a problem with stainless/aluminum contact (since I just yesterday removed about a dozen stainless screws from my exterior that had been there 30 years, with no galvanic corrosion), but if you ever have to drill them out, the aluminum are quite a bit easier to drill out.
