Rivets on windshield and vent window frame.

Has anyone replaced the rivets on their windshield or vent window frames after having them rechromed? I was wondering if you use a pneumatic rivet gun or a rivet hand squeezer.

Having both pneumatic rivet guns and a squeezer and plenty of rivets bucked with both, I would always go for the squeezer on any kind of frame, especially when glass or acrylic is involved. It just takes one sneeze or slip to ruin your day with a cracked pane.
