where can I get the tempered aluminum(?) pop rivets if not the hardware store?

Unfamiliar with the 10'20 notation---what diameter and length is that? I did
get Ed's stainless seat hardware kit, but I take it that won't be sufficient?

that does sound a little concerning. I take it they're more in the way than
other thwart screws?
