With that completed I turned my attention to the installation of the elevator hinges. I then discovered that the canard is 3/16” to long and ¼” to wide. I spoke with Chad at the factory and he said I could leave the length as is but I need to make the trailing edge of the canard as thin as possible so the elevator will have enough up and down angle. So much for my nice prime coat, I took a belt sander and went to town on the trailing edge both on the top and bottom sides. Now the trailing edge is 0.10” on the digital calipers.
