It is funny looking back on it - this little "voice in my head" was saying to use epoxy but another voice was saying "stick to the directions" (which I don't usually do if they "don't make sense"...but this is my first 3DHS plane, and the reputation of 3DHS made me say, "ok they must know better". Lesson learned - the internal voice is always right whether I listen to it or not. Thankfully there was no damage, the vertical stab went fully into the slot, the covering aligns perfectly with the fuse, and it is secure in there now.
(whew)

Good to hear Mike!! When I did my Slick, I put the stab in and started CA'ing (generously as the manual says, lol) and next thing I know it is running down the fuse, hehe. Thank god for Acetone

Gonna head out and fly today after lunch and get some Video
