To install 1/8" pop rivets you are way better off with a #30 drill bit, same goes for 1/8" solid rivets that you will be buck riveting. If you don't have a de-burring tool maybe grab an old 1/4" bit and wrap a handful of duct tape around the shaft so you can de-burr your holes.

Make sure you get a few bits and a litte cutting oil. I break bits all the time

You know, for a while I used to drag around bunches of tools. Not any more. If it won't fit into one smaller toolbox, it's not coming with us. And if something that bad happens along the road, I'll buy something along the road to fix it. So far, the only thing I've had to buy was a small adjustable wrench.
