What rivets...

Finally got my '75 Tradewind back yesterday! It has been out getting some frame work done and is ready for some more work by me. I notices in my latest walk through getting ready to "Tough as Tile" the shower and sink, that a couple of the rivets holding the shower walls are loose or coming out. What sort/size rivets are used here? Can these picked up at Lowes or Harbor Freight?... What does everyone recommend?

They are 1/8" diameter in mine, you will need the longer grip range. I would consider a small flat head stainless steel screw in a #4 or #6.
