While I waited for more clecoes, I decided to tackle a project that could be completed quickly. I looked through the plans and as mentioned before, the elevator horn looked easy enough. The ribs were already in the kit and so was the welded horn. All I had to do was to drill and rivet them. Easy right?

Not so much. Some of the rivets were in some tight spots. I had to use a combination of the hand rivet puller and a little aluminum thingy I made with a hole in the middle and an angled surface so that I could pull it while not being perpendicular to the surface. I still had to drill out a few rivets, but thankfully the holes didn’t enlarge too much.

Here are some pics.
