Trim Hinge Done…Again

February 24th, 2012

NO Edge Distance Issues Now

After waiting a few days for the replacement hinge to arrive, it was time to finish the elevator side of the hinge…again. This time, I left the hinge long and marked it with the skin on the inboard side…like the manual says to…DUH!

Since the new hinge came with a much longer than needed hinge pin, I bent it to the correct dimensions as well. I need to touch up the primer some, but eventually, this will all get painted with the base color when complete.

The trim tab moves silky smooth top to bottom and my worries about strength are no more.
