Yep to the rivits. Rivits in screw holes tend to stand out a little if you don't peen the old hole. I had some holes I did'nt want to show. For a paint over situation JB weld works well. Just make sure the holes are burr free with a slight countersink, and force enough through the hole for a little "mushroom" effect on the back side. There is also an aluminum body filler out there, can't remember the name. Mixes up like bondo and leaves a finish very close to the aluminum, @ $50.00 per Qt. On a rivit hole in an unpainted interior aluminum skin you would have to look for it. On a polished outside it would show.
