Help needed

Hi All,
I have a 1960 Avion H24, which i am restoring, it is very similar to 50/60's tradewind in many aspects. i am replacing belly skins, front and back there is a trim fitted about 1 1/2" wide and 1/2" thick, what is it commonly known as ?
and how does everyone secure it back on, it had long buck rivets with wide heads holding it on, i've not seen rivets like these before, i am in UK so maybe that is the problem ??. if any one could point me in the right direction please ?
i've looked on VTS website but cannot see a suitable rivet.

Many thanks
Tim

They are called rub rails and a great many people attach them with stainless steel pan head screws.

Thank you so much for your reply, i thought that pan head screws might be the answer. Rub rail, of course !!!!! brain freeze on my part.
