The first rivets were set tonight. All parts were deburred with a file, then scotchbrite was used. Once the metal was smooth was used zinc chromate for the corrosion protection. Once we receive the replacement parts from Zenith we can rivet the entire structure and place the skin on the stabilizer.

Project Status:
Horizontal Stabilizer: 14.5 hours spent, 3 pieces borked ( 3h, 2h, 2h, 2h, .5h, 1.5h, 3.5h )
Rudder Done, minus horn : ~16 hours spent, ( ~8h, ~8h )
Workshop Done: ~8 hours
