Advice on installing a new cargo hatch please.

I'm installing a new cargo hatch in a 2010, hole is perfect, surface is clean. I was going to use butyl tape as I have on SOB rvs. Looking at the exhisting hatch it is obvious something else was used at the factory. What's the proper sealant ? Also Olympic rivets O.K?
Thanks!

Since no one responded to this I ordered some Sikaflex 221 grey and some Olympic rivets along with the not included gasket to install the new hatch door. Am I on the right track?

Access door for a storage compartment. I'm actually using one to fill the void where I removed the heater on our 27 FB.

A good bead of sikaflex or vulkem and Olympic rivets is good to go. Have you got the rivet shaver? When I'm doing an install like this i'll make sure I get some sealant on the back side of the rivet holes so a little squeezes out when fastening the rivets, helps to seal around the rivet shaft and hole.

It's nice to know I'm on the right track, so many sealants available!
I'll either borrow a shaver from a friend or dremel them carefully.
Thanks!
