Horizontal Stabilizer: Rear Spar Assembly

RV7-HSTotal Time: 4 hrs 05 mins

Tuesday 15/06/15 Section 6.1.1 to 6.1.5:

I was off to a slower start than I was expecting today mainly because I am still getting used to the tools and equipment.  Also I’m finding reading the plans challenging as the wording takes some getting used to.   2hrs 40 mins

The obligatory before and after of the very first part.

Wednesday 17/06/15 Section 6.1.6 to 6.1.8:

The next part to prepare & assemble is the rear hinge brackets HS-411 assembly.  The bearing needs priming so I will have to move on to the front spar assembly while I wait for it to dry after priming.  Don’t worry, I spotted the bracket was on the wrong side just after I took this photo!  55 mins.

Saturday 20/06/15 Section 6.1.9 to 6.1.11:

Now the bearing has dried I just need put the assembly back together, clamp it and set my first rivets.  That’s the rear spar assembly all complete.  30 mins.
