Vertical Stabilizer - Update

Before moving on to the rudder, I decided to fix a potential problem in the bottom inspar rib where it attaches to the rear spar.  I drifted originally when riveting and dented the flange which makes it look ugly as it jumps upward.  I fabricated a doubler out of scrap aluminum and fixed it.  Now however, I realized that two of the three rivets are too short and will have to be replaced.  I'm sure it's stronger now and it definitely looks better.
