Exterior Fridge Access Door Repair Question

We had an incident the last time out where the exterior access door for the refrigerator got damaged by a branch falling off of a tree. I ordered and have received a replacement from Colonial and before I start replacing I want to make sure I am on the correct page.

The new assembly comes with the door and the frame. I want to drill out the few rivets from the door hinges and just replace the door. I assume that these are 1/8 rivets but will I be able to use 1/8 rivets to replace damaged door or should I go up one size (3/16?) and use those instead?

What do you all think?

Thanks in advance,
Jeff

It was about $275 for the door and frame - not too bad in my opinion. Insurance deductible is $500 (or maybe $1000) so I just bought it without a claim.
