Mast step removal

I'm pulling my boat tomorrow and will be unstepping the mast to repair some wiring, change to LED lights and inspect everything. The mast has steps installed and I have never been a fan of them, they always seem to snag everything and they are ugly. I know they are convenient but I will never climb them so they are coming off as well. Question is what's the best way to fill the holes in the mast, rivets ? Caulk ? JB weld ?

Re: Mast step removal

Don't know if it's best but easiest would be aluminum pop rivets. That what I've done when hardware has been removed and not replaced on the 45 year old stick.
