Fluted and seamed counterweight and tip rib, clecoed, drilled out, then counterweight skin was clecoed, drilled out. Lastly, skins were clecoed on, including trailing edge piece. For the non-builder - all RV and other aircraft control surfaces have counterweights that are forward of the hinge line to counterbalance the surface to prevent flutter and loss of control. This is true for the smallest planes to the large Boeings - in final assembly photos of the latter, one can see the rudders fully painted (and balanced) attached to an otherwise bare aluminum plane. In the second photo, the leading edge and hinge line is to the left with the trailing edge next to my son, and at the top is the overhanging structure which will contain a measured amount of lead when I'm done.

rudder temporary assembly
Rudders are already painted in owner livery prior to balance and attachment.
