The last post ended with the polished rudder on the vertical stabilizer with the skin attached with the silver cleco's.  However, all those holes had to be up-drilled to the final size with the silver cleco's exchanged for bronze.  Then the whole thing was taken apart, deburred and cleaned.

    I was all ready to reassemble the day before Thanksgiving.  As it turns out, I got help from my niece.  She fed me cleco's and I put them in.  She did get to try a few.
