On mine, the rounded heads face down along the frame side rail, and outward on the crossmember,
with the flattened sides on the inner face of the crossmember and side rail.

I hope that 'splains. :-)

The job is so much easier with two good people. But if you are like me, and usually wind up doing everything the hard way alone? This is how I sometimes do rivets (including just two days ago).
I use a piece of scrap iron bar, about five inches long. C-clamp it onto the hard to reach side of the frame, one end of the bar onto the rivet's head, C-clamp about an inch or two away. With the rivet clamped and backed up by the bar, appropriately trimmed, and fit into the holes, I heat the rivet where it pokes through the frame and start hammering the end slowly with a ball-peen hammer. heat, hammer, heat, hammer, guiding the rivet down straight and slow with the angle and direction of the hammer blows.Usually, I just smooth the rivet with light hammer blows.
If I want to get fancy? I did make a die by drilling and rounding a small hole in the end of another piece of scrap bar stock. It does a nice job. But after dozens of hand hammered rivets? I get them them finished so quick I don't bother to pick it up anymore.
Good luck!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
