I had difficulty finding black rivets initially, ended up getting some from a local place so I had SOMETHING to test with. They scratch pretty easily so you have to be careful if you want the result to present well.

I ended up ordering 60 black rivets (3.2 x 10mm black flange) from eBay for about $9, the site/user was Spalding Fasteners and I received them in about a week which was pretty good. Will still definitely place an MDPC order for rivets next time I need something else but lets just say that won't be for a while:

Project coming along nicely, with care and attention to detail. The views are well deserved. :)
Totally understand! I think I admitted to myself straight away that I might lose focus or interest in the build before it was finished and that it could take a LONG time. That's kinda why I've done the build in a weird way - buying PSU/Case/etc before components because I didnt want shiny CPU/GPU sitting there getting dust and growing out of date every day!

Thanks for the encouragement too mate :)
