Rivet Size?

Does anyone know the size of the rivets that hold on the baggage door catches? Replacing the plastic ones with JR stainless steel catches. Mounted one with double sided tape and while it held up just fine on our last trip, I would like more of a flush mount. The first hole on the JR catch matches the original, just need to drill an additional hole on each catch. Thanks, Scott

This is the reply I received from Tammy when I asked about the rivet size when replacing the baggage door catch -


You will need 3/16 diameter and a long shaft.
Please feel free to forward any questions you may have.
