Removed the blue plastic film on the left Horizontal Stabilizer skinRemoved the blue plastic film on the left Horizontal Stabilizer skin
I removed all the plastic on the inside of the HS skin. Then I got out the old metal ruler and soldering iron with smoothed off tip and melted the plastic film for removal. After that I marked the holes that don't get dimples. These holes will be worked on later when I get to the empennage fairing and fiberglass tips.
