Tail Fairings

March 12, 2020 – I started working on the fairings for the tail surfaces.

The fairing for the top of the rudder is probably the easiest fiberglass piece on the airplane. I just had to cut the fairing to clear the wedge in the trailing edge of the rudder. The rest was easy.

I then hung the rudder to check the clearance and position of the vertical stab top fairing.

Here’s the fairing in position.

Once I got the pilot holes drilled, I removed the fairing and glassed in a plug to close the backside.

I moved on to the elevator tip fairings. More or less the same as the rudder fairing. I cut slots for the lead counterweights, and fit and drilled the fairings.
