Stabilizer fittings

Had a few hours at the shop today. Got to make the two upper stabilizer fittings. The one AN4 bolt will go through the stabilizer and hold the fitting while the other two holes will hold the clevises for the tail wires.

First, I started by cutting some .100 sheet steel and drilling the 1/4 in holes.















Then grinding and filing to shape.















The finished fitting. Now, all that has to be done is bend the fitting at the proper angles (yes, there are two bends - one for each wire) beadblast and paint.
