Fuel pump cover and nutplates

I was home sick from work today, but by the afternoon I was feeling good enough to go out to the shop for a bit. First thing was to assemble the fuel pump cover. It looks good from the outside...

...but the flange of the upper cover puckered some on the inside. This mostly happened on the side where I drove the rivets with the gun. I used the squeezer for most of the rivets on the other side and didn't have as much puckering.

I also installed nutplates on all these pieces.
