Elevator Hinge Re-alignment

While re-assembling the elevator, I noticed that the hinges were not properly lined up.
The elevator was probably an eighth of an inch below the stabilizer. It appears that I didn't think to take any pictures of it, but I spent most of the week trying to fix the hinges. I ended up redrilling the holes in the elevator for the hinge blocks, and re-making 2 sets of hinge plates. It's still not perfect, but I can live with it now, at least.

Total Time: 8.5 hrs.
