No problems with #433 either. Everything fit like a glove on my HS.

However, while machine countersinking the rear spar I managed to mangle one hole due to chatter. I drilled it out to a #30 size and used a NAS1097 "oops" rivet. You'd be hard pressed to find it from the skin side as it looks just like an AD3 rivet. From the shop head side it's obvious.
