Fitting elevator to horizontal stabilizer

3.0 hours

Adjusted the rod ends on the stabilizer to the right standoff and fitted the elevator. The next step is to drill through the center hinge bearing into the elevator horn. I got a nylon bushing at Home Depot and drilled through it into the horn. After that was done, discovered that the weights were a little light. They should be a little heavy so that there is some adjustment left after painting. So I'll have to do something about that.
