I finished filing, deburring, all the skin stiffeners. Then I cleco'd them to the rudder skin to drill the holes to final size.

I finished drilling all the skins and stiffeners. Then I deburred all the holes, and dimpled the skins and the stiffeners.

After dimpling, the stiffeners and skins were cleaned and primed.
