Brief Description:  Empennage fairing mod

Began fabricating modified cover plates for the elevator horn attach bolts. The modified covers have an extension on them that extends up and aft and the top edge of it will screw on to the aft end of the empennage fairing. This extension essentially replaces the tab on the aft end of the empennage fairing that is designed to cover the area aft of the HS. The reason for the mod is so that the tabs on the empennage fairs can be trimmed off so that there is less chance of scratching the paint when removing the faring.

I first made a cardboard mockup to determine the dimensions of the new covers. I then used the mockup as a template to make the LH and RH covers. Drilled, deburred and dimpled the mounting holes. Trimmed the tabs off of the aft edges of the empennage fairing.
