Onwards to the left tailcone skin. The remaining bulkheads are clecoed into place first.
I then removed the vinyl from the inside of the left skin and deburred the edges.
The left stiffeners are then put into place…
… followed by the right skin.
I then match drilled the stiffeners using the same sequence I used on the other side. Hello deer.
I then cut and deburred the rudder stop skin stiffeners and clecoed them into place.
Next, the plans have you cut the rudder stop brace from a length of angle.
I cut the part on the band saw, finished it on the disc sander, deburred it, and clamped it into place.
I put levels across both skins at each end and used a digital level to ensure everything was aligned before match drilling .
I then match drilled the stop brace to the aft bulkhead.
