Congratulations and welcome. Use a 3rd party image service and then link using the little pic icon in the editor. Google images is not very VAF friendly.

Default Riviting question

Does it matter which side you put the manufactured head vs shop head? I riveted the HS 710,714 and 00001 to the front spar with manufactured heads facing aft. looking at another builders photos, mine are opposite. i don't see any clearance issues but want to make sure.

Unless otherwise specified:
1. Manufactured head on the outside (MIL Spec)
2. Shop head on thickest material
3. What looks better
