September 22-25, 2016: Rudder Section 7

Catching up on where I am today.

On September 22nd, I continued prep of parts for Section 7 - lots of deburring and some dimpling.

On September 24th, Completed Section 7, page 3 steps 2-4.  Completed Section 7-4.

September 25th:  primed parts for assembly of the rudder spar, completed Section 7-5.  Problem with one rivet on lower spar - had to drill out x 2.  Finally ended up with a "good" rivet but it was a 4-8 instead of a 4-9.  The rivet head was a little on the small side.  Contacted Van's support - "build on".

The "End" of a long journey: The big day finally arrives!

Today Vic Syracuse came down and conducted the airworthiness inspection, we completed the paperwork, and he flew the first flight with me. ...
