Default roll bar question: Rivets

1. Should you counter sink the CS4-4 rivet a bit deeper than flush so that the back window does not touch the CS4-4 rivets after they are pulled.

2. How do you know if the cherry rivets that connect the roll bar to the roll bar brace are set correctly? I know that when I pulled some of the cherry rivets for other parts of the plane, I had to drill out because they were not pulled correctly. Since you can't see the inside of the roll bar, then how do you know if they are set correctly?
