The latest rev. level of the rudder plans (dated 12/03/15) specify final drilling #33 and installing MK-319BS rivets in the aft most holes.

Available HERE

You don't have to use blind rivets on all the holes specified if you have a way to install solid rivets.

BTW, it looks like you may be over squeezing some of your rivets slightly (they look a little on the thin side)
