I was considering the zolatone but reading the web site I had the impression you cann't just buy the stuff, rather you have to find and deal with an installer. Also I don't want that multi color look or something I haven't actually seen a live sample of. I want a good light brushed aluminum brushed nickel look with good depth. That's why I "was" considering the sterling. Maybe I could find some 2024 thats color coated.

Binbin made it about rivets again. You'll want 1/8" diameter and 1/4" grip range aluminum rivets, 1/4" grip covers about 95% of the rivets, grab some 1/2" for the odd ball, rivets are cheap ~$6 for 100 of them. Make sure you get aluminum. Arrow brands aluminum are all aluminum, there are some aluminum that have steel mandrels, don't want those. Simple pop rivet gun can be purchased for $25 ish.
