More elevator

More work on the elevator today, the front fixed part. Did the rivets into the ribs, the finishing tape over the rivets and finally the fishing tape around the whole panel for this.¬†With this finishing tape around the panel I was thinking…

With previous curves, I had problems “ironing” the tape nicely, as you can probably see in photos from Mon 22 Dec.
This time I am pulling the tape around the edges, and by doing that, the edge of the tape automatically drops down towards the flat surface.

At the same time you put sealer only on the middle of the tape, wipe it off and let dry. Also notice the marks I put in the centre on the tape. This is really helpful positioning the tape once the sealer in on.
