Sanded and fit the HS tip to fit. Before I paint the airplane, these will need to be filled and finish sanded.
Final drilled #30, dimpled the skins, and machine countersunk the tip.
I picked up a pneumatic rivet puller at Harbor Freight yesterday. I used it to set the rivets and attach the tips. So much nicer the the manual puller!
This completes the work on the horizontal stabilizer and elevators. So I’ve moved them to a safe place until I’m ready to final attach them at the end of the build.
