Shifter Boot Retainer

Any suggestions on fixing the factory plastic shifting boot retainer on my 08 Rubicon manual shift. The faux plastic rivets looks as if they are glued down to the consol panel holding the rubber boot in the pre drilled holes on the boot itself. 4 of these faux rivets starting at the cup holder going around toward the passenger side broke loose and my boot comes out each time I shift to first. I feel like I'm missing something simple.

Epoxy. There is a vendor around here that sells a one that actually screws down, but Epoxy will do it. I used Epoxy on my 07.

The black boot and the bottom plate are all one piece. IIRC, there are 2 straight pull clips in the rear, and 2 slide clips in the front.
I thought mine was more mechanical, so I busted it the first time I took it off. ~$20 at the dealer.


....or epoxy!

This must be a 2008 thing. My 08 did the same thing. I like the idea of the screws it doesn't look too bad either.
