Horizontal Stab 14 (3.0 hrs)


Today I worked on the left stab. I drilled the trim cable hole in the front spar using my step-bits. Both sides of the stab have been completely deburred and dimpled. The only remaining work is to finish dimpling the skins, and I’ll be ready to prime and rivet.

Unfortunately, I made another mistake. Go figure. It feels like every other post I make a stupid mistake. Well I screwed up a dimple in one of the skins. I think it can be repaired. But I might have to order a new skin… I posted to Van’s Airforce and Rivetbanger’s to get expert opinions. Ugh. Not happy.
