I had to locate some after drilling out the old ones in the tail lights on a motor home we had. The squirrels got in there and ate the wires up.
I looked everywhere until I finally went to a place that sells stainless nuts, bolts, everything. Its a #8 rivet, split so it doesn't cause a fatigue fracture, on the fiberglass.
If you were to use a solid one like they do in the door regulators, there would be spider web cracks all the way around it.

That is why I forget things, memory bank is full and older stuff gets purged. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Check out the "blind rivets" on the McMaster-Carr website. Many specialty items and they can meet just about any and all hardware needs.

cheers,
Joopy
