Default F-710 bulkhead question

Ive got this bulkhead installed. Its fluted and clecoed in. I havent match drilled and not dimpled yet. I cant seem to get rid of this buckling in the bulkhead. Ive tried fluting. Nothing i do seems to help. Maybe it will fix itself after its match drilled and dimpled. Any thoughts or ideas appreciated. Video attached.

Mine did that too but it's rock solid after riveting.

One the older kits clecoing a sheet of plywood to the floppy bulkhead frames helped hold stuff flat until drilled/riveted.
