HS Skins begin

Tonight I finally got to start working the the skins.  As you can see from the picture below I put together the left horizontal stabilizer and then drilled out the holes.  Then I took it all back apart and started the deburring process all over again.  I have to make a comment here about the quality of these kits.  Every hole is pre-drilled with an undersized bit and so far every single hole has lined up perfectly!  Thats some serious CAD skill.  Added 4 more hours to the total.

looking down the center of the HS.

The small gap below the spar gave me pause until I realized that there will be  a doubler plate installed.

Left HS in the jig all cleco'd up for drilling.
