Think about future paint and wrap jobs when pulling your rivets. It may seem like a good idea to work from inside the cabin, but think about how to paint over a protruding rivet. Suggest installing rivets from the outside in.
My preference is to do all riveting from the outside... Mr. Heintz says this in the construction standards:
"When there is a choice, the original rivet head should be on the side of the
thinnest part, or the outside of the aircraft."
