Elevator Work

The doublers that install around the trim cable cutouts stiffen the elevator skins and have several nutplates installed. The nutplates rivet holes need to be dimpled. So I had to modify one of my dimple dies by grinding down one of its edges to clear the back side of the nutplates. It worked well and the doublers came out great. I then began backriveting the ribs to the skins, but I'll have to finish that maybe tomorrow. (2.0)
