Elevator and Trim Work

This past weekend I worked on the elevators and trim tabs. The trim tabs have a lot of detail work to them for such a little part. You have to bend the edge tabs in and finish bending the skins themselves among a few other things. Both the elevators and trim tabs have foam ribs in them to stiffen the skins. The skins need to be scuffed and masked before they are primed in the areas the ribs will go. So I finished the trim tabs, scuffed the skins, and primed the last parts. After a few minutes in the warm sun the parts were dry and I started final assembly of the elevators. Fri (1.0) Sat (3.0) Sun (6.5)
