1977 Excella 500 Gutted Remodel

Hey y'all.

I have purchased this '77 Excella fully gutted and am turning it into my mobile business. I've cut the water pipes and am in the process of removing everything from the interior besides the electric and the brakes (of course). I have a few questions:

1. If you are standing inside of the Airstream looking at the front window, are the brakes located in the bottom left corner?

2. Does anyone know where I might find replacement air vents? Both need to be replaced.

3. What size are the interior Airstream rivets? I need to buy a gun and re-rivet a few panels.

I appreciate the help!

My 77 E500 has hydraulic to disc brakes. The hydraulic lineruns under floor deck down center of trailer to mid pointbetween the axles and Tees there to each side. Starts up at hitch A frame where it enters the subframe.
