Missed Dimple. What to do?

Missed dimpling a hole and most of Horizontal Stabilizer is riveted. Do I just dimple in place? The nose rib underneath is dimpled.

HS-905 Nose Ribs

Is it me or does riveting these suck? My rivets do not want to stay flush to the surface of the skin. I moved the rib close to one of the supports of the jig and i still can't get a good set on it.
