1/8-inch drill bit.

Pop-rivets are 1/8-inch by 1/8-inch--aluminum. Anything bigger (or another metal) can cause trouble.

Push in on the trim if you're drilling new holes into the fiberglass. If there's an existing, but useless, pop-rivet, leave it in and add a new one. Don't drill through the bottom edge of the trim, as you'll make sharp edges to find with your knee or your fingers! :confused: (You're drilling through the top of just one side of the trim).

When you use the wrong length pop-rivets, there are some other sharp edges to worry about! :(
