I'm about 1/32 bow on the longer brackets. Tried the section 5 straightening process for longer stamped parts, haven't quite figured out the technique without risk of bending it worse. Will keep finessing. Thx-

I am please to report success!! I was still feeling some slight binding on bearing with clecko's in the two rivets I removed. Decided to hang aileron to see if I could feel resistance. I could not. Chose to re rivet the two rivets I had drilled out near the bearing. After riveting bearing turns freely. No binding noticeable at all!
I'd like to take credit for being a skilled builder but I'm certain it was just pure dumb luck🙃. Which I will gladly take!
