Default Wing Root Fairing Tank Dimple

How did everyone else tackle getting this hole dimpled for #8? The T-905 angle sits right behind it and there isn't room to get a squeezer in there. There is barely room to get the dimple die alone.

This tool from Avery works for tight spots. Comes in #6 and #8 screw sizes.

I don't know how well it works but I have heard of some builders using a countersunk nutplate as the female die, and a screw as the male die.
