Ace Hardware Phil. I get most all of my specialty rivets (excluding ball joints) from them. They are not cheap even when bought in bulk and I usually buy a quantity at any given time so I have enough in my inventory. They even have the rivets used on the grille brackets. However, the tool is another thing and if you want to use the correct rivets you also need the correct tool and there are several different sizes. I don't recall where I bought mine but they are readily available on the net.

For those doing their own kick panels, this is the product I use to seal them against the interior side walls, DS-110 Duct Seal. This matches the original to a T, is easy to work with and seals them from water leaks. You can get this at most big box stores in the electrical department. On average it will take pretty close to the whole brick to do one pair of kick panels. I slice the brick into a ribbons about 3/4" wide length wise and roll it between my palms until you make an approximate 3/4" to 1" diameter rope. I would rather use too much in this area than not enough as water leaks are not good.
