Today I made up the access panel cover plates. The plans call for these to be fastened using sheet metal screws but I plan to use nut pates. I prefer to fasten the nut plates using counter sunk rivets which makes it fairly easy to also use counter sunk screws. I noticed that the cover plate for the right side of the fuselage will partially cover a couple of rivets so I am considering installing these as countersunk rivets. After making the cover plates I started to make up the nut plate spacers. Once I had the spacers complete I started to layout and drill the holes in the left skin for the nut plates. With the holes completed, I dimpled them and started the riveting.
