Rambler Rivets

New to the forum, but not RVing.
I have a 1989 Imperial, and I found a rivot that the head had popped off of. I obviously want to replace it, but I'd like to do this with as close to possible factory spec rivot. Anybody have a clue what size/spec rivot I would need for this?

Thanks in advance!

Tim

Do you you know why it broke in the first place? Wouldnt want to replace it only to have it fail again due to some other problem..

Where is this rivet at?

The rivet is just forward of the driver's door, between the forward door jamb and the lower windshield corner. It appears to just be a lap joint, which has rubber sealant under it. Factory install, as the rubber seal has factory paint on it. I just don't want the typical aluminum pop rivet in it. Would prefer to replace it with an OEM comparable item.

Thanks in advance,

Tim

A bit more info please. Flat head or Round head style? Is the rivet aluminum or steel? Can you reach both sides? If you can't a pop rivet will be your only option fill the hole with JB weld and paint to match.
