what do you think of my rivets?

So the glove box was broken in my YJ. The door came off the hinge. Before buying a new one i thought i would try rivets and see how it looks....What do you think?

I think it'll look perfect if you sand it a little then spray paint the whole door black again

It's functional and a little paint will go a long way. Good Job
