Yeah I bought some of those too. Unfortunately they are pretty cruddy and the paint chips off as soon as you rivet them into something

did you use some plastic/rubber rings in the middle of the rivet and the rivet tool? im thinking put some sillicon pads i got for the hdd on top of the rivet head so the rivet gun wont chip the paint off

The head of the rivet was actually ok. It was more the body of it (that was the visible bit in my case). Paint just flaked right off it.
