After consulting with Van's an IA buddy came over to help implement the fix. Van's solution was to cut the fractured tab off file it smooth and fabricate an angle tab out of .025. After an hour and a half or so, the fix was complete, the remaining rivets set, and the HS was done.
....There I was, 8 rivets left to set and the HS would finally be complete, when all of a sudden things took a turn for the worse... I managed to crack one of the single hole flanges on one of the inboard ribs with the bucking bar. Needless to say I was done for the day. Although I know it wasn't the end of the world it was disappointing.
After some ~6 hours of prep work its finally time to set the first rivets on the HS. I was sure to take my time and work very methodically through these rivets by highlighting in the plans what rivets I have completed. At this point the plans only show half of the HS because the other half is mirrored and follows the same rivet pattern. The blue tape reminds me where I am not to rivet.
At this point I'm at a stand still with the rudder since I'm still waiting for the replacement horn from Van's. So why not start the horizontal stabilizer? Much like the other couple of sections, the CNC cut parts have extremely rough edge and need alot of attention.
The fruits of my labor.
