Default RV-8 and the Smoking Rivets

This weekend turned out to be a good time to replace a couple of smoking rivets.

Handee Clamp looks like a great tool. Just purchased one.

I think I would have just reset those two rivets rather than replace them and risk paint chips.

I thought about doing that, but wasn't sure it would work out. With everything required to gain access to them I didn't want to have to do it again if I didn't have to.
