Empennage - Horizontal Stabilizer

2003-08-05 - Discovered major screw-up. (2.0 Hrs).


After setting 10 rivets in the left front HS spar and HS skin, I finally figured-out just what was causing the gap between the skin and the spar on every rivet--Dufus forgot to dimple the front HS spar! That idiot! Looks like I cannot rely upon him to do anything right. That's why I'm building this for him. Anyway, I had to remove all 10 rivets, remove the 2 on the end of the spar, and remove the 3 pop rivets in the 707/708 ribs. At least I got a picture of that 707 nose rib that was closed-up on Sunday. It looks ok.
