Damazio family's RV-10 project
Rudder ready for riveting
Drilled through all of the rudder skin, deburred all the holes, machine-countersunk the trailing edge, and it's now ready for the primer (which I'm still waiting for).

I'll probably move slower until after the 24th, as I have an upcoming checkride that I want to study for.
Total rudder time: 17.9h
