Do you think I need to drill them out and start again or might they just need to be tightened up? I did try to buck them by myself by reaching through the window hole with the bucking bar. (for future reference this did not go well).
The good news is that it was not the buck rivets that I had already replaced I had missed the fact that the repair skin piece had a row of pop rivets holding the bottom edge of the skin on. They were leaking and were hidden under the trim on the outside and goo on the inside. I have replaced those rivets with buck rivets and cleared up those leaks. with the help of my two Rosie the riveters.
