Another two hours spent on the elevator. We pre-drilled the top of the skin in key spots, ratcheted everything down matched up the lines and drilled into the spar before stopping. No major goofs, although the drill line for one of the ribs was moved over a few millimeters.

Incidentally we got our first noise complaint... from an elderly lady... at 11pm... who could hear us drilling in her living room... from a block away.

Project Status:
Elevator: ~12.5 hours spent ( 3h, 1.5h, 3h, .5h, 3.5h, 2h )
Horizontal Stabilizer: ~28 hours spent, 3 pieces replaced ( 3h, 2h, 2h, 2h, .5h, 1.5h, 3.5h, 1.5h, 5, 4.5, 2h, .5h )
Rudder Done, minus horn : ~16 hours spent, ( ~8h, ~8h )
Total Done: ~57.5 hours

Elderly people are awake at 11 pm? Amazing! Well, I suppose that when I reach the age of elderly, I too will want my piece of quiet. Darn punk teenagers, drilling their planes together in their garages! Go out and make some mischief, and be less noisy about it!
