Trimmed elevator stiffeners

Trimmed all of the elevator stiffeners. Like the rudder, four or five stiffeners are cut from any given piece of angle. Van's is kind enough to punch holes in the material to indicate where cuts should be made. This makes trimming a very simple process. However, the part numbers are a little ambiguous. For example, the part labeled as "DEFG" contains four stiffeners of different length (presumably parts D, E, F, and G). However, I'm not yet positive which is which. I'll just have to make an educated guess (maybe they're in alphabetic order from left to right) and make sure they all fit properly to the skins.

Time spent: 2 hours (42 total)
