Built the home-made shetal metal break per the plans to form the trailing edge of the rudder. (:30) used 2x8s and cut them 60" and 54" long respectively and used door hinges. They leave the trailing edges unfinished so you can rivet the stiffners in place. I drilled out a "proud" rivet on the skin that I wasn't happy with and the new one was much almost perfect so I'm happy with that. Mitchel came out around 6:15am and helped me form the rudder trailing edge in the break. Took alot of force, but I was careful not to let the stiffners touch the skin on the opposite side and deform the metal. I literally stood on the break as Mitchel watched to be sure I wasn't over-squeezing it. All went well.
