I think they will hold, but might switch to pop rivets anyway - I have lots of spares. I know a guy that flew with his front skin clecoed on, which gave me confidence that they will hold.

While taking a shower last night I realized I should have just used hinge to fit the pieces together - that would hold securely, look nice, and be easy to fold. Oh well - next time!
