Patching holes with flush rivits?
I have a couple of places on my AS exterior skin that could stand repairing. One place in particular is a spot that has a tear on one of the curved end panels. I think I am going to eventually paint my AS so I have been thinking about ways to repair the hole that would be fine for painting but not necessarily for polishing. It occurred to me to wonder if anyone has done any patching of their AS skin using flush rivits. I remember seeing aircraft surfaces that were rivited with rivits that were flush with the skin surface rather than raised like the typical rivits on my AS. So here is the questiion:
Would it be possible to cut out a piece of the body, cut a new piece to fit, put in a backing piece and rivit it to both the patch and the body panel around the patch? If so what type of rivits would I need? Would they need to be bucked?
