VTail Drill, Debur, Dimple, Prime Work

9 hours work on the vertical stab.  Clecoed, drilled, disassembled, deburred, dimpled, finished, primed as required.  I’m going to leave the Alclad alone, as best I can, this time.  No need to buff off the Alclad and then add primer, the Alclad is meant to be anticorrosive as it is.  I’ll prime the exterior skin, within the devinylized areas to avoid scratches while the remainder of the work is completed.  Next, deburr, dimple, prime and then rivet it together.
