Brief Description: Match drilled rudder skins and structure
Missed construction yesterday morning due to flying again, but I have the whole Thanksgiving weekend to make up for lost time. I was out in the garage at 5:30am. Match-drilled the rear spar to attach rod end reinforcement plates. Match-drilled all the pieces that come togther at the bottom of the rudder. Then cleco'd on the skin and match drill to the ribs and spar. After that was done I began removing the plastic arounnd the rivet lines for the spar and ribs. I plan to work on it more today and "tweak" the trailing edge a bit to get it crisp per the plans.
