    Yes, trim the backing plate. You will need to bend the ear of the backing plate a little too, inside, to the rear.

    stupid question..

    what size rivets are you guys using to rivet the piece inside the stringer..?

    Kale when ever riveting something use the biggest rivet you can freely put into the whole with out having to really force it in.

    3/16 rivets. Use a sharp bit and slow speed.

    +1, WD-40 also to help keep it cool if the bit is not of top quality.
