Tail's on! Temporarily, of course. Still a lot of work to do with control surface rigging, trim tab cable routing (grrr), and fiberglass.

Have you considered going the electric trim route? I re-did my old "3A" binding trim cable with an electric based on Randy's site. Worked great and was really pretty easy to do.
