Box Truck Screw Heads

I am doing box truck with small square hole screw heads instead of rivets. Is it possible to cover the heads with vinyl, my concern is the square hole in the head leaving air and lifting overtime. The vinyl only conforms to round part of head. Just wondering if any one has done these screw heads before. Do you think it is better to remove screws and put vinyl behind.See More
