VS Assembly

1.2 hours and 6 rivets.
Finish riveting VS ribs to front spar.
Cleco skin to rib/spar assembly.

Superlight Vertical Stabilizer sub-structure.

Nobody stocks a small torque wrench. So I ordered a

Park TW-1 from Performance Bike. With shipping this ended up being 50 bucks. Hmmm.

Also ordered AN3 clecoes and some ProSeal from Van's, in prep for the feared rudder/elevator trailing edge work.
