Casita door latch reassembly

My door latch finally quit working when the 2nd spring broke (while camping, of course). I drilled out the rivets and found new springs to replace the broken one. My question is how do you rivet the assembly back together. The rivets need to be nearly flush on both sides as opposed to a blind rivet which mushrooms on one side. Anyone use a rivet setter or find some other solution?
