First post here to the site.. -8 right elevator - I'm having issues getting proper hole alignment between E-704 and E-702 spar. After several hours of fluting, flattening, and gentle "persuasion", I was finally able to get the counterweight skin to align properly with the two ribs, E-703 and 704. I've dug around the forums and find discussions about hole alignment with the ribs and the counterweight skin, but couldn't find any that address my issue specifically.
My issue is this - the holes on the aft flange of E-704 (counterweight rib) don't align with the holes in the spar web. ALL other holes line up perfectly, between the two ribs, the skin and E-703 (tip rib) to the spar flange. It's just these two that aren't lining up. Aside from ordering a new rib (not pre punched, if that's an option), I'm stumped.
Does anyone smarter than me have any ideas? Thanks in advance! Not sure about how to post images, but hopefully this works...
