Horz stab completion

Build hours: 321

The horizontal stabs are complete. This shows the elevator hinges being aligned with a steel wall stud.

A piece of .062 lexan was used for the 2.5" inspection holes. 6-32 nutplates were riveted to the lexan to secure the inspection plate. By removing 3 screws and loosening the fourth, the inspection plate can be rotated for access to the stab bolts. The lexan covers were installed before closing but could have been rolled and inserted through the hole at a later time.
