Default Close riveting on 9 aileron

I'm having trouble with this last rivet on the ailerons. I've read that some use a pull or flush rivet here.

What P/N pull rivet would I use? and can it be used with the dimpled skin?

Will an MK319 work if the skin is dimpled?

Same rivets as used on the bottom skin, so ya they will work for the dimples. The pilot hole needs to be enlarged slightly just like when attaching the bottom skin.

#34 or #33 bit or reamer will work for MK-319BS.

I'm building the flaps now also, that do use the MK319 pull rivets on the bottom skins, and I assumed that you do not dimple those installations?

The MK319 rivet is a counter sink rivet, therefore it must go into a dimpled/ countersink hole

With further looking, I see that! Needs a dimple.
Good to go slow and check things out.

Can these blind rivets also be used for the close locations on the flap top skins?

Default Close riveting

I did a little creative grinding on old ax head to use as a bucking bar with quite good results on my 8 .
