What’s best to fix the body to the chassis?
Rivets? Tek screws?

Rivets with a decent size head so they do not get pulled through the fibre glass panels.

In addition to using rivets for fixed panels, I would suggest using rivnuts (as seen here https://www.rivetwise.co.uk/rivets/rivet-nuts.asp) and machine screws for anything that will need removing for access.

The key thing is to buy ribbed rivnuts, as shown in the link above, and drill the hole sizes correctly so they are a snug fit.  That way, when they rivnuts are inserted, they are a good interference fit and clamp the chassis and cannot spin around.  The biggest problem people have with rivnuts is when they come to undo the screws years later, the screws have corroded into the rivnuts and the nuts and screws just spin around in the hole in the chassis.
