Ailerons finished!

2.5 hrs, 39 rivets.
Riveted left aileron trailing edge. This ones a bit better. Both are still acceptable. The ailerons took about 55 hours.

Spent a fair amount of time cleaning proseal off the trailing edges. It sure does stick well.

Bolted aileron hinges to the assemblies. Started pulling all the hardware for attachment to the wing, but decided to wait, since the flaps need to be worked on.

Started marking up the angle iron for the new F906A angle brackets. This time I got the 1 5/8" measurement right, instead of making it 1 5/16". Tomorrow I'll measure it again, and then cut!
