Default Another Hard To Reach Rivet (Rudder)

I must have done something wrong or missed an instruction. Last night I dry fitted (haven't riveted the skins together yet) my rudder skins. I wanted to see how everything fit before I put adhesive on the trailing edge.

What I found was an extremely tight fit between the skins on the last rivet on the bottom edge of the rudder. It's so close that the rivet actually touches the shop head of the rivet from the other skin. In addition, when in its current position, the factory head sits just a bit proud in the dimple.


Please see below:

Thanks for your input.
