3.2 hrs, 67 rivets.
Clean, MEK, and prime stiffener, skin, and trim servo attach and cover.

Rivet elevator hinge reinforcement plates to spar.
Rivet spar and root rib.
Match drill, debur, and rivet elevator horn to spar/ribs.
Rivet counterbalance ribs together.

Realized I was forgetting the trim servo. So opened up the kit and got out the instructions to do the research. There are two brackets that attach the trim servo inside the left elevator, so need to figure out how and where they attach. That adds just a bit more prep work to do before finishing the left elevator.
