Rivet replacement

It's been quite some time since I last chimed in here but now I'm needing some advice/help. Our sweet little Boley (72 Boler American) is needing to have most, if not all, of its rivets replaced. When we initially bought it, we replaced many of them with stainless steel bolts that have acorn caps on the inside. As it turns out, some of them leak and I'm not happy with the way they look on the outside. A nice new paint job is tough to pull off with those things sticking out. I'm sure I've seen lengthy discussions of this situation but can't seem to track anything down. Can someone point me in the right direction?
