Is anyone dimpling the forward .040 fuse skins instead of countersinking?
The machined countersink is easier and looks better, but dimpling should be
stronger, what did you all do?

I countersunk, next time I'd probably dimple, finish not so important
when painted.

I'm probably the minority but i dimpled every skin and component .040" and less. It is stronger and easier. I also did this on my RV6 and didn't have the problem a lot of builders did with rivets loosening up on the belly.
