Testing out custom dimple die

The custom close quarters dimple die arrived from Cleaveland tool. It's just like their normal 3/32 close quarters dimple die except they made this one with the tank die recess instead of the regular dimple recess.

It looks like it's small enough to dimple these holes even though they are really close to the bend radius of the baffle flange.

Setting the baffle (with Z brackets attached) back on the spar looks like there's gonna be enough room for the dimple and a shop head.

Here's a flush rivet put in the wrong way to simulate a shop head. Still looks good...close but OK.
