Horizontal Stab 16 (4.0 hrs)

Today, I finished several tasks. First, I dimpled both of the horizontal stab skins. I drilled the new holes that will bracket the mistake I made a few weeks back, and finally I primed all the remaining horizontal stab parts to include the insides of the skins. Productive day!

First up are pics of my fix for the dimple mistake I made. I used the digital calipers to precisely mark the exact center locations between the bad dimple and the rivets on either side. After marking the centerline it was a quick fix to drill, deburr and dimple the new holes.




Here are all the parts after priming. Now its time to rivet! I guess its time I learn how…. 🙂
