Steel rivets need to be hot in order set them properly and you have to work fast to set them before the rivet cools. You'll need tongs to handle the hot rivets, a hammer, welders gloves, and a bucking bar. Clamp everything into place. Heat the rivet to a medium red. Pick it up with the tongs and insert it into the hole. Place the bucking bar over the head and then strike the tail end of the rivet with a good blow from the hammer to set the rivet.
A little practice in some scrap steel will build your confidence.
As already mentioned, Torx drive button head bolts will be easier, safer and faster. Just fill the Torx socket with Bondo or JB Weld and by the time it's painted, you'll likely not even notice the difference.
