Great job, much ignored part of the car and good to see done right.

I would be very tempted to simply masking tape them down tight and simply put a dollop of black tigerseal on each rivet... which can easily be cut away if they ever need to come off again?

Yes Andy, that would certainly work well and no one would be the wiser...except me! However, as with everything I do....just want the bits, parts and cars to be like the way they were when first purchased.
