All good points, thanks. I didn't want to offend the rivet purists but thought it might make a lot of sense to use zinc screws with washers to hold the pan in place. You can't see it and it can be re-opened. Zinc vs. stainless steel??

Or Stainless with Zinc washers. The Zinc protects the aluminum and steel. Hot dipped galvanize works well but zinc plating does not last long.
