Apologies Swiebertje, for the tardy reply.  In the end, I used 4.8mm Monel rivets, as the hole diameter was not enlarged. So why enlarge a rivet hole unnecessarily?  Time enough to do that when/if it becomes too oversize for a standard size rivet.

Interesting info regards the shear and tensile strength of the various rivet materials and sizes.

Thanks, davdor
