I would not reject an entire airplane based on this single photo. Seems harsh to me

That probably started with the Pre-Punched versions of the tail kits.

I still think this is a -6 that was built before the pre-punched (PP) stuff came out.

The original trim tab horn was completely different. Stolen pic of a early RV-6 after a minor repair -

You will notice this horn location puts the control rod/cable further inboard than the current designs.

I also think instant rejection is a bit harsh, but a full detailed inspection of the rest of the aircraft would be warranted.
