Back to the Elevator after final Horizontal prep

The day started deburring the remaining parts for the Horizontal Stabilizer followed by dimpling the skins. Sweet Jesus are there a lot of holes to dimple. Then priming prep followed by priming the last Horizontal Stabilizer parts. Not to be forgotten the front and rear spars holes were countersunk.

Back to the Elevators, I riveted the ribs and then installed the spar. Got one of the spars completely riveted and the other Elevator cleco’d, I was beginning to lose focus so I called it a day. Tomorrow I’ll knock out the last of the spar rivets and hopefully have the Elevator complete, sans the Elevator Trim tabs – glueing the foam blocks, riveting the trailing edge, and adding the curve to the leading edge.
