'58 Window Strange Rivets + Sealant

Hi All-

I have two questions and perhaps you know the answers. I have a 57 safari and I am redoing all of the windows. There was nothing but old calking holding the panes in the windows. I'm wondering what I should buy to sit the new panes back in the frames. Also, there are small rivets that hold the screen frames together and hold the vertical middle sections of the screen frames together at the top and bottom. I have no idea what these tiny rivets are and where to find replacements of them.

If you have any ideas I would love to hear them.

Can you post a picture of the riveted area, I can most likely find you a number but I need to see them first.

Those tiny rivets that hold the "back channels" on are very small buck rivets. I ended up using 1/8 pop rivets when I redid mine.
