Default Rudder Leading Edge Started

Today I set up my bench to roll the Rudder leading edge. I successfully finished 2 sections, now that I'm comfortable with the process I should be able to finish the rest tomorrow.

Looks good. I read your blog and had the same issues using the tape on the trailing edge.

Did you do anything to close the gap in the Trailing Edge? I talked to Van's and they said it will not affect flight performance, but it will bother me knowing I have a few gaps.

I had a very similar setup on my work table for rolling. It works very well.

Thumbs up Flush rivets

Besides several attempts at reforming the leading edge of the elevator; I noticed my nemesis were a few ill placed round head rivets inside the aft of horizontal stab. So I drilled them out, countersunk and installed flush pull rivets. Problem solved!👍

Plans may now have been revised to correct the close tolerances.🤷🏼*♂️
