Will someone take/post a quick pic please

I want to see how the screen door is attached to the hinge, rivets or nuts/bolts. Ours was missing the screen door and the hinge for it had been cut off. I have made a couple of hinges, installed them on the replacement screen door and then riveted them back on through 6 holes that were in place on the door for each hinge......but its not pretty and wonder if I should be looking for a better method to fix them.
I had some fixings that I knew I would never need that I threw out and they would have been ideal and I dont know where to get them or what they are called, similar to a nut and bolt except the threaded bolt part screws into a threaded tube section and both heads are the same. The length would have been right for the thickness of material I need to get through.
Thanks in advance!

I had to remove the screen door on my 75 TW to get a crack welded. I attached it the same as it was originally. 3 buck rivet in the holes nearest the hinge and 3 blind rivets in the remaining holes.

I went with just the 6 outer blind rivets but reamed out the holes and used a larger rivet in each, filled the remaining outer holes and will re-drill and fix , them if the door works itself loose, but I really don't think it will.
