A-Pillar bracket rivet size

Well I'm PO'd. I got the bracket for my A-pillar mod, I went to install it and wouldn't you know it my largest rivet is a 3/16" and it would not hold not even close. To late to hit the stores now, but I'll going in the morning. Does someone know what size rivet I need for this job, so I don't wind up wastin more time, lol. Thanks
