Elevators complete

I bent the hinge pins and secured them with safety wire:
Right hinge pin secured
Left hinge pin secured
I then bent the leading edge of the top skins, and rolled the skins with a pipe:
My wife while we rolled the leading edges
Half-rolled leading edges
Fully rolled leading edges, ready for riveting
Riveted leading edges
Finally, I attached the counterweights and torqued them to about 22 in-lb:
Inboard counterweight
Outboard counterweight
Time lapse:


Total elevator time: 194.2h
Total elevator rivets: 1562
Total empennage time: 491.4h
Total empennage rivets: 3663
