Brief Description:  Rudder - Skins not tight to wedge

I might have to re-buy and remake a rudder. Notice below in some places the skins are not tight to the wedge. The black stuff is stuck in there. It caused the buckling. Also my back rivet tool made dents on the skins further ruining the look. From arms length it is okay. And it is strong and I'm sure it will fly. But I am not happy. If I make it again, I'm going to NOT DO THE fuel tank sealer. The shop heads are okay and flush, but there are swells due to the black stuff giving trailing edge a ripple.
