Electric aileron trim assembly

I match-drilled the trim assembly to the cover plate:

then dimpled the holes, installed nutplates and screwed them together:

I ran the servo to find the center position, then marked it on the links:

The next steps require the aileron pushrods to be installed and adjusted, which can only happen after the tanks are in place, which in turn is pending on installing the fuel return brackets, which are pending an order for 3/8" NPT tap.

Time lapse:

Total aileron trim time: 5.6h
Total aileron trim rivets: 12
