I'm no expert so hopefully other guys will chime in. I dont like that there is a gap between the parts as it sits. Do you plan to get another rivet in the open hole? If so, and that gets rid of the gap, I think you are fine. Once again, I don't feel even remotely qualified to give advice but there are plenty of guys on here that can.

Default Dont even know what I was thinking..

No good. Decision made. Drilled out the other rivets for the other ribs (thankfully no damage) and will replace front spar and top rib. On a better note, got my replacement parts for the Horizontal Stab. Re-bent the front spar reinforce bar 6 deg.and drilled my HS405 holes perfect. Cleco'd left skin on and marked for other ribs and all edge distances are beautiful. wheeeeew. I was really about to cry.. BUT THERE'S NO CRYING IN AIRPLANCE BUILDING !
