Installing Pop Rivets
I am about to attach the fiberglass tips to the elevators and
stab and the plans call for 1/8 inch counter sunk pop rivets at
2" spacing. Every time I see pop rivets in such obvious places
I stop and study to make sure I'm not about to do something I'll
regret. Is this like it seems or is there another way or modified
approach to this step?

The pop rivets work fine, even though most of us hate to use
You can always fill the holes if you want.
One trick in installing them is to drill #40 first, then dimple
the 3/32" dimple die, then drill out #30, since the shaft is
the head is the same as a -3 rivet.
