Started off great.  Got all of the rudder parts deburred after final-drilling all of the rudder skins.
Got all of the ribs dimpled, along with the spar.  Then the day turned gloomy after I
missed a hole with the pneumatic riveter.  As if that wasn't bad enough, I then missed by
a little on another hole, and also dimpled the other rudder skin that was underneath the one
I was doing.  Just plain sloppy.  Finished alodining the parts with Alodine 1201 though,
and they turned out great.  Now I'm going to put the rudder aside until I get new skins
to put on, and work on th H.Stab.
