Interor rivet replacement

My 2010 25 FC has lost four rivets in the interior since new.
two are about six feet apart above the sink side. the other two are next to each other when the top panel overlaps the lower panel at the narrow connection between the rear quarter window and adjacent left side large window. These two have for some reason gotten the two sheets of aluminum a little out of alignment. do I simply drill out the holes to align or do I attempt to work the panels into hole alignment.

I used to do aluminum work years ago and am experienced in rivet gun use.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

We had four fall out also. We just replaced them in the original holes, but it didn't take much manipulation to have the holes line up again.
