Another vote for rivets here.
Use aluminum mandrel rivets, steel is tougher to snap so the rivet gun likes to jump more which is danger, danger for your new repaint.
All body panels to be perfectly aligned and door hinges/pins all good before deciding where to drill the fenders.

Currently restoring my 69 Mach 1, unmolested, untouched all original. Here are some photos of the clips and moldings.  The last attachment point is screwed in. Hope this helps.

My San Jose car had studs welded to the body, same as the pillar medians.:

Installed with:

This stud welder is used to install copper studs that go into a slide hammer for pulling dents.




NOT the "T" top studs seen around the window openings and later rockers.
