Rivets Around Door

Does anyone know what rivets I need to use around the door of my 1964 Bambi?
I have to replace about 10 of them and see that the existing ones are smooth on both sides. The rivets I have been using are not smooth on the back. I know the door seal covers them but the length of the rivet will make the door difficult to close and may also damage the seal.
Thank you for any advice.

Steve I replaced several around the door of my Bambi II with standard all aluminum rivets. Filed the heads down a bit to flatten them out.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Thank You Michael - I will do that and hopefully they will hold and anyway they be hidden by the door seal.
