  I am building a new firewall for my Pitts. Around the
firewall is the aluminum angle stock used as the rear
support/attachment for the cowling. The prints say to
use AN470AD solid rivets. Is it allowable to use the
"Cherry" pop rivets (steel BSPQ rivets)? The BSPQ
rivets are the structural ones used on airframe
