I did consider repairing it .. and did a quick pass with a flat rivet set .. just made it worse .. and since there wasn't a lot of time spent on that part to that point I just ordered another.

To maintain a quality build and keep my OCD in check I've rebuilt a couple of parts .. including the trim tab a number of times.

I got in a hurry with the rivet gun on my first rudder attempt at too high PSI and put a giant ding in it ... ON THE LAST RUN OF 10 RIVETS ... rebuilt ... second assembly much better than the first.

Amazing how much you learn up to this point in the build.

Good luck, bkervaski. Thanks for sharing the ups and downs. It's good to know we all battle the same problems. Stay with it!
