I know those rivets well. The issue I had were also clenched rivets. The parts being rivited are at angles other than 90 degrees making it difficult to hold a bucking bar correctly. I taped some plastic shims to my tungsten bar to keep it in proper alignment just by holding it against structure. Works well in other areas with angled pieces like the inner nose ribs on the horizontal stabilizer.
