how do I install a stove vent?

Howdy everyone!
I took the old vent off (because it was leaking) and I am ready to install new shroud or cover...what do I use to seal it to the body? Do I use vulkem or silicone?
I have never done this before and really don't know....
Then I have six existing holes where I took out the rivets. Do I just re-rivet in the same holes? Do I drill new ones?
Thank you in advance

Do the same holes if everything lines up! And I think they usually say 'use the VULKEM'!

Exactly! Try and use the same holes. Vulkem is the best product for what you want to do. Never use Silicone.
