I've seen two 20 plus year old ones that were fine.

I concur!
Also, as another point to ponder with these true plastic rivets:

Be sure you want them installed when ya put 'em in.....because getting these rivets back out involves drilling their center out. Not difficult, as they're plastic, but for the sheer number of them on something like a penthouse seal.....

Not necessarily for this exact scenario (although maybe, I didn't have time to really look), but I've used this place in the past and they're a wealth of helpful retainer clips and fasteners. A lot of them are the exact OEM replacements you'd get from the dealership. I've found a few things here that I wasn't able to find anywhere else:
