Aileron Counterbalance Tube Drilling



This involved putting the nose skins on, taking the nose skins off, putting the nose skins on, and taking the nose skins off.  Here’s a photo before taking them off the last time.


Only tricky bit here was that the nose ribs didn’t want to align with the skins after bolting them to the counterbalance tube.  There was just enough play after loosening the bolts and holding them outward while I re-tightened them that they lined up just fine the second time.
