To good of a miracle......

I was able to take the bow out of the trailing edge of the stab. I soaked the wood with some Windex with ammonia. I places a 1/8 spacer at the fuse and a stick and clamp at the center of the bow. One side went just a tad to far and the other side is right on the money. I re-soaked the wood and use a stick on the tips of stab and leaned it up against the freezer and twisted the tips slightly past ideal. Now both tips are twisted to far I'm going to let it set and see if mother nature will allow them to relax back to normal.

The good news is I'm working on my CAP wing so I have some time. I'll try to get some pictures posted.

Ken
