Brief Description:  Dimpled, riveted right bottom elevator skin

Predictably, due to the cold weather, the proseal on the left elevator trailing edge is still tacky. Holiday gives some extra time but then it snows today while I'm working in the hangar. This stuff may not set until May. Anyway, took the replacement elevator skin, bent the inboard tab, and dimpled all the #40 holes. Drilled off the rib half and doubler plate from the dented skin and then back-riveted them on to the new one. No problems this time. Proceeded to rivet the remaining ribs - wouldn't you know it? I made a slight dent in one spot but I'm pretty sure I can smooth it out sufficient to polish and have it not be noticable. Added the rear spar and rivetd it to the ribs along with the shear clips and the inboard gusset.
