My recommendation to builders when they ask, is to use the standard dies and remove excess sealant from the dimples before inserting the rivets.

Recommend anyone that is thinking about using Tank Dies do a little research on percentage more blisters there are on Painted Tanks that have been built with Tank Dies.

Expect to find that tanks built with "Tank Dies" have a higher percentage of blisters under the paint than the tanks built with "standard dies." Once you have your research complete, proceed with the method of your choice.
