Horizontal Stabilizer Rear Spar Assembly

Got an hour in the shop tonight and started assembling the rear spar. Pneumatic squeezer saved my day here. Each rivet is exactly perfect and looks good. Basically in this session I was able to put the spar together and get the elevator hinges in place. Now it gets set aside until the skins are on and final HS assembly is underway.

Also, a quick pic of the primed skin. Light coats are best, and doubled up where metal touches metal. Now I am ready for tomorrows, big day of riveting.. Hopefully Rebekah will be up for it. ;-)
