Much better for future removal of flares and trim. clipsandfasteners are probably still the best bet for price, though I think using screws is better than using rivets.
Point taken. For fastening plastic, I actually like plastic rivets, particularly the push-in plastic fasteners. There is nothing to rattle loose and hopefully they give before the bodywork tears. I bought quite a few assorted fasteners from clipsandfasteners. I even got a small plastic rivet gun. Unfortunately, most aluminium pop rivet guns don't accept the thicker shank of the plastic rivets.
