Going to change the skin on The rear fender on a 8n what is the best way to get the rivets out and do you put rivets back in or bolts?

I cut them off the front with a grinder and used carriage bolts as replacements. Soak the carriage bolt heads in acid for a few minutes to etch the plating so that paint will stick.

I would grind the rivets off from the skin side.
You don't mar up the frame that way if you want it to look nice.
What you replace them with depends on how original you want them to look.
Carriage bolts work fine but arent quite the same shape.
You can take bolts and chuck them in a drill and shape the heads with a grinder and file while the drill is spinning too. They look original from the outside but will have a nut on the inside.
Myself, I like things to look nice but am not too sphincterly challenged about exact original.

I would use a grining/light cutting blade on the frame/support side of the fender or drill out the rivets, and use small bolts of the same type to replacee. easier than
peening rivets.
good luck. kris
