It's fine, build on. If the only mistakes you make are accidentally using a few 1 size too long rivets, you're going to have an amazing airplane.

So I bought some 3/32 welding rod and was able to bend it and it turned out pretty good. The rod I bought is a bit more malleable than the supplied steel rod, but I'm not worried about it. I'm gonna...

I have thought about using a random piece of steel wire but my issue is that the bend that holds the float seems a little too difficult to form. I may run to the store later and pick up some welding...
