Blind rivet for trim tab attach spar

My brother was working on the left elevator of his RV-6A and called to ask what kind of blind rivets I used for the last four holes which attach the trim tab spar to the elevator skin. While I bucked solid rivets on the top, I used these for the bottom. They fit into a 3/32" dimple although you do need to enlarge the hole to 7/64".
