Rudder top fairing hole missing?
I am in the process of installing the fairing on top of the rudder. Looking at the plans, it shows that there should be 9 holes pre drilled on either side of the top of the rudder to rivet the fairing in place. The rudder only has 8 holes drilled from the factory and I didn't recall seeing a step that mentioned drilling a new hole. The hole that appears to be missing is the most aft rivet hole.
Anyone run in to this? I am thinking that it should have the 9th hole, since as it sits without it there is approx 5 1/2 inches of the trailing edge of the fairing that is not fastened with any rivet or anything else. Should I still an extra hole to match the plans, or would the 8 existing holes be sufficient?
I am going to try to attach photos. Not sure how well it will come out
