Started cutting out the Right Elevator stiffenersStarted cutting out the Right Elevator stiffeners
I decided to cut out the stiffeners and cleco them in place on the elevator skins as I finish each one.

After drawing the cut lines on the stiffener, using the hole marks provided by Vans, I made a rough cut using my band saw on each individual stiffener to free each one from the long stiffener. Then I cut the long diagonal cut and then finished off the end cuts using the table top bench sander.
