Do you own one of every length and style of bucking bar ever made? If so, you're good to go. If not, at least consider saving untold effort and using a pulled rivet if it's not primary structure. Like a floor pan corner. There may be a way for some of these tucked-away rivets to be driven, but I can't find it with available tooling.
