Fabricated Elevator Tab Rib
After cutting the elevator tabs off, I needed to fabricate a small rib, so that's what I did. I similar to bending the tabs, I made a wooden form and bent the tab around the form. It seemed to work pretty well and the tab is much squarer (is that a word?) than the bent tabs were.
The mini-rib riveted into place. I will be the first to admit it isn't perfect, but once painted... you wil never know.
