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.

After the primer was dry, started the riveting of the stiffeners to the skins. Did this using back-riveting. Very fast and easy.
