Task: Prepped the trailing edge of the rudder
for ProSeal. ProSealed the AEX wedge and clecod into place.
I made sure the trailing edge was straight before going any
further. I match drilled the wedge to a peice of angle stock.
It really helps keep things straight.
I removed all the clecos and used foam to spread the trailing
edges apart. I purposely left several of the rivets out on
the end ribs to facilitate sealing the trailing edge.
I didn't take any pictures of the ProSeal
process but it was ugly. It makes a mess. I laid out a big
piece of painters plastic, mixed the B1/2 ProSeal and gooped
it on. I used a piece of aluminium to spread it evenly and
quickly clecod it into place between the two skins. I then
clecod the angle stock into place and made sure the trailing
edge was still straight. I finished by putting a few rivets
in the base and tip end ribs.
