Quality engineering Marek and these videos keep getting slicker! Has the camera got a glass lense? ... beware those flying sparks, they are really great at etching glass!  I learnt the hard way.... a repacement windscreen for my pickup! Hope to see you at Stretton.

the camera is an action camera which has a lens cover made for going underwater which is plastic so shouldn't etch. thank you for the advice

Looking good Marek, one tip when doing a lot of pop riveting, put all the rivets in, other than the holes occupied by the cleecos, pull them all down, then go back and do the odd ones. I think you'll find it's a lot quicker not having to keep putting the gun down to fit the next rivet.

I tried some blind rivetting just the other day. While it may be authentic, it's a very difficult job on your own. I would not recommend it. Pop rivets can be disguised :)
