Left elevator & trim tab: 8.4 hours

Decided to redo some parts I was not content with and constructed a new elevator trim tab. The orginal tab had a slight bow in the skin from accidentally bending the tab spar flange while dimpling.
Trimmed ends of trim tab and elevator. Fabricated and installed minature ribs. Looks much better than the standard fold over ends but consumed quite a bit of time making the mini ribs from sheet. BTW it’s a 10° bend.
