Section: 11
Hours: 5

I'm getting really good at mounting and un-mounting the elevators. The manual specifies a starting position for rod end hinges. The trick is to adjust them until you can move the elevator through the whole range of movement specified without the leading edge rubbing on the horizontal stab. I tried some massaging of the leading edges to get a closer fit, but in the end I ended up twisting out the rod ends a couple of turns.
Here I've clamped the elevator in trail position prior to drilling the center hole.
