nearing an end to the elevator

5 hours
Getting to the end of the elevator has taken more time and effort than expected... nearly there though.  I am very pleased with the alignment and fit of the trim tab to the elevator and have gained considerable experience from the process.
bending the end tabs on the trim tab and elevator where there is no rib is a bit tricky.
