Done. Followed the instructions except that I drilled the control horn off the stabilator on a drill press the reinstalled to match drill the doubler and spar cap. Pretty beefy compared to old configuration. Anyone see any obvious flaws?

Looks great! I'm just getting started with mine (kit ordered). In fact the kits are presently backordered about 2 weeks.

I did the same as you. I pulled the control horns off and mounted them on my small mill and drilled the holes. When you drilled the doublers did you drill through the spar box? I'm thinking of just drilling into the doubler enough to mark them and then drilling them on the drill press to avoid drilling the spar box. Scott already said it's no big deal to drill it, but still might do it off the spar.

I drilled through the spar cap to ensure alignment. The risk of not doing it that way far exceeded the inconsequential effects of 6 #40 holes in the spar cap. Think of all the lightening holes in the spar! I was tempted though! BTW, a 12 #30 drill bit is helpful in removing the hinge rivets.

Looks good! I haven't received my SB-18-02-02 parts yet. Do the HS-01231C Stabilator Hinge Gussets just go on top of the stabilator, as seen in the photo, or are there two additional gussets on the bottom, too?

Thanks,

What rivets did you use in the holes I circled in your inboard Hinge bracket assembly My eyes are not good enough to see in your picture. Figure 6 reads AN470AD3-3.5 4 places for inboard hinge and 2 places outboard hinge. Then install AN426AD3-4 in 2 places for the K1000-4 nut plate. Seems to me the two inboard holes on the inboard hinge bracket should get 426 rivets flush inside edge of the hinge, and not the 470 since they will be so close to the bearing when stab reinstalled. Just a thought I was going to ask Vans on Monday but thought I would run it by you since you have already done SB.

Thanks
