Brief Description:  Trim Tab

Bent the closeout tabs on the trim tab skin and drilled the trim tab horn parts to the skin and spar.

On the elevator, I had trouble with the inside bending block slipping, even though I had two strips of double-sided tape on both sides. This time, I tightened the clamps with channel-locks, and the bending block didn't budge. The increased clamping pressure made the taped blocks a bit challenging to remove, but not so much as to bend the skin.
