Horizontal Stabiliser Finished!

Access much easier for the 470 rivets that are left once you can lay the structure flat. Van’s specified AD4-6 for the 6 rivets that attach the inside ribs to the rear spar, but they just seemed too short. AD-7 were too long, so I filed down -7’s to make -6.5’s, and it seemed to work just fine.

That’s it, all done! Now placed up on the rafters for safe keeping : )
