Original style rivets

Greetings, I have a 1972 Sovereign and would like to know if anyone can tell me how to install an original style rivet around the panorama or sky windows. The seals on these are broken and I need to remove the window, fix the seals and reinstall them. I want to know specifically how the rivet tool works and how to install them? Im not talking about pop rivets, but the airstream rivets use something else and I have no idea how to install them. Is there a pod cast or info in this forum that shows me this?

Are you removing the window from the frame that surounds the glass or are you removing the the frame that is riveted to the tailers skin? These are two different types of rivets.
