Replacing rivets on a 37 years old Selden mast?

Replacing rivets on a 37 years old Selden mast?
This year we bought a 37 years old Hallberg Rassy 42e and we’ll be replacing the standing rigging but plan to keep the mast and boom. While I was inspecting them I saw that some of the rivets seem good (there’s no corrosion around them – is my conclusion correct?) but there is some corrosion around others.
What is your view regarding the rivets of such age? Should they be left as they are, should I replace the ones where there’s some corosion around or should all be replaced?
Thanks!
