what size rivet?

I've got some of the 5/32 rivets that I've used for the outside skin but don't know what the size of the small rivets that are on the bottom "channel" molding of my '67 Tradewind. What size should I order? Some of the are rusting and must not be aluminum and I want to replace. Thank you.

Rivets

If you're asking about the row of rivets between the body and the belly pan, I think they are 5/32" also. If they look smaller they may be modified Brazier head rivets. Mine are all the same size top to bottom. The mod. Brazier has a head diameter of .312. Also possible that a PO used 1/8th rivets in a bungled repair job.

size

The holes are actually smaller. Couldn't get a 5/16 rivet thru. This is on a trim piece that has three grooves on it and runs around the base of the trailer.

If they have a hole in the center they are probably 1/8" pop rivets.
