I started the Left Elevator by clecoing the stiffeners to the skin and match drilling them.

Here I am moving the clecos to match drill the other holes.

Next thing I needed to do is turn over the elevator and match drill the other side.

Here is a look at the area in the elevator for the electric trim tab servo.

This is the cover for the servo the oblong hole is where the arm comes out to move the trim tab.

Here is one last look at the skin with the stiffeners match drilled.

Short night, but I was only waiting for my wife to get home.

Type at ya next time.
