Maybe it won’t be the case with yours but I think you might find that with nuts positioned aft, the bolts will interfere with the rudder.

Thank you, Scott! I am sure they will interfere...haha. I pulled it off shortly after this photo to finish the F-781 Vert. Stab. plate so I will reverse those bolts at your recommendation! Thank you again! Any helpful hints like this in advance are appreciated.

You were correct Scott, flipped those bolts around, and no clearance issues.

Default EMP fairing

Just started on the emp. fairing seems pretty decent really. A bit of sanding here a little floxy there and see what happens.

Thanks, Jereme!
I am trying to get as much done before my next job starts. Not sure when that is currently but it will come.

You were very much an inspiration.
