Johnny's RV-14


Got stuck on this one for a while because the holes of the skin and the counterbalance rib weren't aligned very well and it was just taking too much force to try. 10$ and I got a new one that fit like a champ and finished the build. Did the rudder IAW the vans section 5 manual using the tape but when we start doing proseal we're going to run a bead down the very tip of the trailing edge to try to get a good seal on it. It's probably fine as it is but I think that small amount of effort could make it better. Rolling edges sucks though and it's not completely perfectly in line with the template. We'll stick the bolts in and mount it to the vertical stab to see if that clearance is there and massage it as required.
