Brief Description: Dimpling the skins for the horizontal stabilizer.
I started to dimple the skins for the horizontal stabilizer on sunday. In my haste to complete my task I accidentaly dented the r/h skin, in a poor attempt to fix my mistake I have made the problem worse. I feel that that skin is now beyond repair...very discouraging. Nothing a call to Vans and a couple hundred dollars wont fix. Lesson learned : dont rush and always use the the correct tools. I took a few pictures, but they dont show the full extent of the damage. It may be possible to repair and re-use this piece but I would not be happy putting this skin on my airplane. Into the scrap bin it goes.
