Ok, so the side panels are held on with 14 rivets total and the dash with 2 rivets. The HT kit came with 6 very long rivets...

Once old rivets are drilled out, I'd imagine I should seal the holes.?..100% silicone or marine jb weld ok, or do I have to break out resin and stuff?

Where does HT expect me to use the 6 long rivets? the rear 'bond rail cover' is held on with 6 studs and nuts, and that is the only multiple of 6 I can find.
