Finishing the Horizontal Stabilizer Parts

I worked partial days on Thursday and Friday to get things ready for priming. All of the remaining holes were deburred, ribs were dimpled, skins were dimpled, the front spar was countersunk, and most of the parts were washed, etched, rinsed, and dried for priming.

I etched the ribs before dimpling (not intentionally) but that ended up making it easier to use the ScotchBrite pad on the flange holes. I dimpled the ribs after they were dried and I used gloves to keep skin oil off of the parts while dimpling.
