Well it is time for my condition inspection, and it is interesting to see how the years of build actually work.
The photos below show some rubbing on the fuse of my RV7 at 69 hrs TT. There are no screws in this area and the fairing was bedded with a thin layer of micro to ensure even contact.
I find it odd that it moves and there the contact points (black spots) are, 1- on the LE of the VS and then on the fuse like the whole empennage was wiggling side to side. There are no other marks on the entire contact perimeter, but this is the only section without any screws.
Is this part designed to be structural?
Have others found this condition and what did you do?
1) Don't worry and put HDMW tape under it to accommodate the movement.
2) Add a screw to the fuse at the forward tip of the fairing? ( it won't fix the VS rub)
3) Replace the aft deck increased thickness material to .050"
Let me know what you have found, Thanks
