I have drilled out through quarterlight top rivet to replace the window rubbers.  Are there any suitable rivets I can use rather than a small bolt and screw?

I presume you have kept the Brass spacer if so I used Stainless Button Head Allen Bolts with a Stainless Nyloc Nut and in my opinion they look really neat.

Could get a photo for you let me know.
