Asssembling the horizontal stabilizer – Part 3

All we did tonight is put the HS skins in the cradle and cleco the nose ribs in place. We found it worked best to cleco the nose ribs to one side of the skin, put the skin in the cradle, then cleco the other side. Chuck (the previous owner) did an excellent job preparing the nose ribs–no hint of the flat spots on the outside of the skin that are often caused by the rib flanges.
