Default VS 1006 hole for conduit

Hi all,

Iím going to close the vertical stabilizer riveting the skin.
At the same time I placed a conduit inside and now I need to create a hole in the upper rib vs1006 front position.
I read a lot about and I saw several solutions. Honestly Iíd like to place also a couple of nutplate to attach future camera.

The question is Iíd like to have some document explaining the possibility to adopt these modifications.

In other words, what I need is to validate the modificarion.
Also, Iím sure that during the technical inspection I will have to demonstrate that the hole can not create any issue.

So, are there anybody with some official documents from Vans reporting such kind of informations? or are there any other data could be used for that?

Thanks a lot

Default Well

Vanís probably doesnít have anything like that however, if you call them, they could tell you what they think.

As the manufacturer of your plane, you have the final say as to what is approved or not. The use of AC-43-13 may be if some help with acceptable edge clearance and such...
