Finish match drilling bottom left including trim cover reinforcement plate.

Start match drilling left top stiffeners.

Order from Avery's arrived, minus the longeron yoke. But discovered I still need a #6 dimple die. Sigh.

Finished sanding, deburring stiffeners.
Started match drilling bottom left elevator/stiffeners.

Ordered a longeron yoke, 3/32 vice-grip dimpler, and a # drill gauge from Avery. Oh, and a Van's Air Force shirt!

Finished match drilling right top stiffeners.
Resand long stiffeners for left elevator. The short ones didn't really need it. I must have done that right the first time around.
