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.

Pet peeve: "Lose" (rhymes with "booze") is the opposite of "find". "Loose" (rhymes with "juice") means "not tight".
