Another little trick to get two pieces of aluminum to fasten tight, is to make a small rubber doughnut just a little thicker than the amount of rivet sticking out, place it over the rivet where you form the shop head, push firmly with the bucking bar, and give it a few taps with the gun. The doughnut will hold the pieces together before the bar makes contact.
Works great with squeezers and c-frame press also.
