Welcome aboard, cedboone. You need a 5/32 Olympic rivet. You should get extras to keep on hand. Vintage Trailer Supply is probably the least expensive place to buy them but they come in pkgs of 100. You should also get a tube of Vulkem and put a dab on the rivet when you install it. A standard pop rivet gun will do the job. You can shave the head with a Dremel tool if you have one.
I've used just an inexpensive mounted point in an electric drill to shave them, since I haven't had occasion to do very many. See pic below.
I'd be glad to mail you a few rivets if I had them, but I only have a couple left.
