Very nice, make sure you address the elevator bellcrank issue before installing the rudder.

After my trip through the trees my horizontal pivot point needs to be re-secured. What are the thoughts on drilling tiny holes through the FG and balsa bushing and forcing either CA or epoxy through the drilled holes to try and secure it.

Maybe even removing the original balsa bushing and replace it with a larger diameter balsa or ply bushing on the inside where the above technique could be used.

Thoughts? Curt

I still haven't begun the repair on my right wing. I was hoping to get to it over the holidays but so far no progress.
