Next time, use CS4-4 rivets and shape the dimples with 120į dimple die from Cleaveland. Use AN960-4L (NAS NAS1149FN432) washers for the rivet tail backer.

Default Thanks again Brian

Thanks again Brian for the expert tips. Been there, done that (second time around) probably really helps. The cs4-4 rivets would have been easier, and very easy with washer backers. I copied how the builder did it on my 2003 rv-9a I own and fly. My brackets and hangers are not in final install mode, and smart thinking in adding k1000 nut plates for LRU servicing. It will be sad closing all this nice access with the fwd top skin. I do plan on putting in vans access plates so I can still get behind the sub panel. My other plane requires upside down gymnastics which are awful as you get older. ďHelp honey I am stuckĒ to no reply. It is also a slider so no access even behind the panel, except for where I cut out access plates. Again thanks!

Default Decided on fuse box instead of c/bís

Using back terminated fuse box as my avionics buss and c/b equivalent; kind of like the rv-12 does (?and rv-14 now too?)
