Rim eyelets replacements

On my rim a wolber from the mid 80's i noticed that several eyelets are dropping like ripe fruit.

No the rim itself is very nice and i was wondering if i could use these little washers on the inside of the rim so i can still use it.

I don't ride much and the bike is a classic one and i'm light build so the strain on the nipples is very low.

I don't want to replace the rims as they are part of the bike in terms of authenticity.

Let me know what i can do in order to still keep those rims with the bike.

Thanks in advance.
