Started dimpling the other flap

As I mentioned before, the majority of these holes in the flap ribs had to dimpled with the vise-grip dimplers. To get a really good dimple, I had to set the vise-grips to the point of almost not closing. Anything less tight made a dip or crater in the rib around the rivet hole.
