Default Flap Motor Bracket, Baggage Side Panel

You may already know this, but . . . Page 32-07, figure 2 calls for installing 2 AN426AD3-4 rivets into the flap motor brackets, but the F-01405F mid-fuselage brace has not been countersunk. I confirmed with Sterling at Van's that flush rivets are required, because a flush cover will be installed later. Also, on page 32-08, figure 1, flush 426 AN 3-3 rivets are called out to join the baggage side panels and the F-01482 L & R bulkheads, when dimpling the side panels and the bulkheads was not specified. Sterling said it was acceptable to either dimple and install flush rivets or, as I did, just install 470 AN 3-3 rivets instead.

Check page 29-19 step 2. That is where it gets countersunk.

Ok, thanks. I have the QB fuselage, and I try to check all the steps as done, but I missed that one. The two holes for the brackets were not countersunk in my fuselage.
