Yay! Rivets came in the mail and I was able to finally complete the elevators.
Cleaned up the edges and deburred the longerons and J stiffeners.
Matched drilled the aft bulkheads to the VS aft spar.
Countersunk the tie down support.
Dimpled the bulkheads. I think I found a problem with the plans. They called for dimpling the #30 holes in the web of the bulkhead. Note the two dimples along the edge of the tiedown bracket. they are keeping it from sitting flush against the bulkhead. I’ll likely need to undimple these holes somehow.
Match drilled the next bulkhead to the HS attach bars and dimpled the flanges.
Likewise with the next bulkhead…
Ready for deburring, scuffing, and priming.
