Seems to me the two inboard holes on the inboard hinge bracket should get 426 rivets flush inside edge of the hinge, and not the 470 since they will be so close to the bearing when stab reinstalled. Just a thought I was going to ask Vans on Monday but thought I would run it by you since you have already done SB.
Jeff, I'm doing this SB and am at the point of riveting these brackets together. Here's my take:
1). The holes you've circled in the picture don't look like they have rivets in them.
2). I made my Inboard Bracket using four AN470AD3-3.5 rivets as called out and the inner rivets clear the bearing no problem.
3). It seems like AN470 rivets would also work for attaching the nut plate to the outer bracket but will countersink and use the AN426AD3-4 rivets as called out, just to be safe.
