I can’t remember if I’m to put gloss or primer on before applying Archer rivets. Any tips are welcome.

       Gloss. And in my opinion, there is no need to do prep on clean styrene. I have worked on both freight cars and a scratchbuilt girder bridge, and applying the Archer rivets directly to styrene is fine. But DO overspray them with something at your earliest convenience. Then they will stay where you put them.
