    Rivet question

    Iím building up the Stainless firewall on my experimental cub. The Piper drawings show four reinforcement doublers where the cowl attach points. There are two rivets in each of those doublers that are listed as 3/16 x 9/64 cad plated steel tubular rivets. I canít find anything resembling that in the Spruce catalog. Anyone here know what to use in those spots?

    Thanks,

    Mr. Ed

    At McMaster, https://www.mcmaster.com/97451a670
    Might be a touch long.

    Ah wait those are brass, let me look further.
    they have 9/64th steel here, still not spot on.

    Folks'
    I am looking at Service Memo #10 for rib repair - specifically at the rivet spec which is shown as '2S-0 Alum BR HD rivet'.
    Would MS20470A be suitable or MS20470AD be the one or something else perhaps?
    Many thanks
    Frank

    MS20470A is the one, AD rivets will deform in the soft material and make a mess.
