Looking for advice on removing the base of my mast *picture included*

Sorry for the confusing title, I didn't know how else to describe it.

My mast is on a tabernacle and while I have it down replacing the rigging, I also need to run new wires down the mast for the anchor light. I am not having much luck so far and I think I may need to remove the base of it.

It is held on by three rivets. I can figure out removing it. When I reattach it, can I use some heavy sheet metal screws instead? How about pop rivets?

Hopefully the picture will help make it sense. Sorry if my explanation is confusing.

Thanks for any advice.
