I need to remove the lower trim (between the front and rear wheels) on my 84 so I can paint those pieces. Is there another way to refasten them after I paint them? I think those pieces are plastic riveted on, and I don't have a rivet tool and don't want to buy one for a one time job. Thanks.

Bolts nuts and washers could cost more too, and would rust.

They make plastic bolts/nuts. You can also get push-in fastners, which act like rivets. Those are available at auto store or a hardware store like Lowes. You can also use stainless nut/bolts.

Check out Harbor Freight, though...

I didn't think the rivets and guns were that cheap. I also have have some spares of the push in fasteners. the stainless nuts and bolts were what I was thinking but I may rethink that. Thanks for the suggestions.
