While getting 7H2-7 ready I realized from the plans that I drilled both 7H2-6s upside down. Simply taking the parts, swapping sides and turning them upside down ( which would put them in the correct orientation ) will not work. Either the holes would be elongated past my level of comfort OR two holes will be unreasonably close to each other.

The only real option is to order replacements and wait to rivet the skeleton togther.

I guess I'll be starting the elevator's skeleton sooner than I thought.

Project Status:
Horizontal Stabilizer: 11 hours spent ( 3h, 2h, 2h, 2h, .5h, 1.5h )
Rudder Done : ~16 hours spent ( ~8h, ~8h )
Workshop Done: ~8 hours
Ric Romero: Reporting the obvious
