Believe 3DHS on this, you do not need to, nor do you want to remove it. You stand a good chance of cutting into the stab if you do, which only weakens the structure, and not removing the covering also allows you to remove the stab if the need arises.
Thanks Steve. I was just curious if there was anything like bolting the gear in instead of epoxy, a la 48 Edge. I did see the horizontal stab section in the manual, and I had to trim out the rear portion of the slot so the elevator joiner didn't bind. Other than that, smooth as silk. I'm finished with the frame, now to put guts in it!
