I final drilled all the holes to #30, dimpled them, machine countersunk the holes in the fiberglass, and blind riveted the tip to the VS. I detached the rudder from the VS and put the VS aside. Won’t be needing it again for a long time.
I marked the rudder bottom fairing and cut the hole for the tail light with the Dremel tool.
Used the sanding drum on the Dremel to finish up the hole.
I primed the outside of the doubler with SEM rattle can primer.
I mixed up some flox and used it to adhere the doubler to the rudder fairing.
I blind riveted it in place. I’ll clean it up with sand paper once it has cured.
