That is what we in the aviation field call a fatal mistake by an inexperienced shooter. It is caused by the rivet shooter not having the rivet set square on the head of the rivet, and the rivet set makes contact with the skin. The only repair is replacement of the panel. Sorry

Well, I figured it was gonna be panel replacement. I e-mailed Airstream and will wait to see what the want to do. I am sure this breaches the clearcoat and WILL cause corrosion issues at a later (or sooner) date.

Did anyone else out there have this problem while under warranty. I would appreciate any feedback as to resolution. Thanks! Jim
