Here's the look I'm going for. I know it's a bit over done at the moment (like having a grey cafe racer style) but I do love the look (of both!)
Might do a custom plate for the top instead of 'Austin' or 'Morris', may be 'Desert rat'? Any ideas anyone?

Can anyone explain to me how to do the proper rivets on rocker covers (non blind rivets, without holes in- sorry don't know the correct name), is there any special tool required?

You would need a rivet setting tool.

Looks serious, costs abit too much to do 2 rivets. I was hoping something I could hit with a hammer

You can get Blind Rivets or old school Rivets, that you'll need a dolly for. You'd also want to use some sealant with either of these.

you should be able to get some both with the right sized dome in the ends. you support one side and then using a ball peen hammer peen it if and then finish with the other punch to finish off the shape.

 

i would just use a blind pop rivet like the one on the left
