I only had a few rivets to set to finish up the firewall, however, wouldn't ya know they were the more difficult ones? The four pointed to by the arrows are a pain because the angle interferes with the backriveting set's sleeve. My sleeve was already shaved down on one side from doing something on the empennage, but it wasn't enough. TO get these guys, I had to hold up the sleeve with my hand and let her rip. On the bottom most, not only does the angle interfere, but so does the bottom stiffener. My solution here was to set the rivet about half way with the backriveting set, then using the squeezer to get finish the job. The pic makes that rivet look way worse than it really is.


Woo hoo, everything done, except for the recess which you are supposed to do later, so you have access to put in the brakes or something.


The pin on the backriveting set nicked the stiffener here. I spot primed it with some spray can primer once I sanded out the burr.
