I've heard of people using rivets(instead of spot welding) to secure a piece of sheet metal to a panel on their cars after they have cut away the rusted portion. Is this an acceptable practice as far as structural integrity is concerned? What are your thought on this? Would this be ok for someone who doesn't have access to a welder?

Whats the deal guy ? You have asked the same question three times in the last 24 hours. You received answers to the first question, then posted a second same question and now this time with the same question again. Posting the same question several times is not going to change the answer. NO pop riveting a patch panel on an exterior surface of a car is NOT acceptible. Either weld the patch panel in or use panel bonding adhesive.
