Section: 9
Hours: 1.5

I mixed up another batch of ProSeal and glued in the foam ribs for the back of the right elevator. I also put double sided tape on the trailing edge aluminum wedge and glued it to the lower skin only as per the instructions in the manual. I clamped a straight board on top of the elevator to press the skins onto the ribs and left it to cure for a day.

Since the wedge gets thicker towards the aft of the elevator, I left it hanging over the edge of the table so I could clamp the board to ensure good contact with the ribs inside.

End view of the elevator to show how the trailing edge wedge fits.
