I was tracing and trimming the fiberglass for the Horizontal Stabilizer Tip Caps and came across an issue that I think is normal, but looking for confirmation.
After match drilling the tip caps in place I noticed the fairing tip extended beyond the elevator fairing and was skinnier in the middle. As you can see in the photo
For a moment I considered filling the tip with flox and sanding it back, but then realized I needed to bow the fairing in the middle which gave it the correct shape that matched the elevator fairing. As these pictures show.
My thought is to leave the wood block in while attaching the backing patch which is discussed in 12-6. I imagine once the fiberglass lays up it will hold the fairing in the correct position and I can remove the wood block.
Can someone confirm this assumption, or is their another method more appropriate? Thanks
