Thank you for this suggestions. I am building a QB RV-9 slider and I had to drill out some of those handsome QB rivets to fit the upper front deck skin. As I was drilling I was wondering how I would get them back.

Trimmed about 1/4" off it parallel to the longerons and suddenly I had enough room to get a 3/8" thick L shaped bucking bar in there.
Kudos to everybody who can stand on their head and use a screwdriver as a bucking bar, but I've tried stuff like that before and sad to say, thats a skill set thats hit or miss for me. this was eezy peeze.
Thanks for all the suggestions!
