Holiday work: completed vertical stabilizer rear spar


Took the whole day to work on the project and managed to complete almost all the steps for the rear spar (except drilling the upper attach bolt holes, as I realized I don't have the required 3/16" drill bit).

This is starting to look like an airplane part
Ready to drill the final holes through all parts

They say clecos are one of the pillars of sheet metal work :)
First time using this microstop countersink, so took a while to adjust it (I used the trimmed part of VS-1004 and an AN426AD4-4 for that):


Shiny machine-countersunk holes

Time lapse:



Total vertical stabilizer time: 9.5h
