Actually chamfer the edge of the holes? what tool did you use to do that? I think I understand what you mean...

ideally a proper hole chamfer tool but in absence of this, use a big drill bit.  That's what I did.  Chamfer just means putting an angled edge on something

Rivets fail all the time when they are subjected to vibration and movement.  I remember one person posting once (years ago, might have been the old PSD forums) saying that a rivet had fallen out and caused damage to the pistons.
Possibly this thread http://www.polog40.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,2500.0.html ?
Shows the (nasty!) damage caused by an escaped nut & bolt

To replace where it's had too much material removed I'd assume? Boosts well, has no problems and I've done probably 5-6k since I fitted it in July. I don't think I had as much as that in there but I remember Pete mentioning it when he serviced it.
