Vintage trailer supply has a wide flange rivet for underneath. though it has a hole, you would expect water to drain out, not in, through the bottom. The center hole makes it much easer to drill out and inspect if needed. Buck rivets can be a little more tricky to drill out. Just a thought - Rob.

10 points to the first person that provides a link to "screw, aircraft grade, aluminum, phillips".

Either flat head or pan head will suffice.

Screws

Look here its a start. My buddy used to be a boeing plane inspector he thought they could be found. Sorry been busy or I would have searched harder for ya. Looks like I got beat to the finish line. Make shure you thread lock those screws they will need red thread locker from 3-m not the blue it wont hold on aluminum.
