In this section we mounted the aileron control torque tube mid-bearing support bracket on the inside of the keel, along the pre-marked line on the keel. With the rear bearing support located, we measured where the torque tube lined up inside the keel and located the 1″ hole on the support rib. We then sanded the keel in this location and attached the rib with structural adhesive and rivets, and the bearing was installed with microglass. With everything aligned, the remaining bolt holes were drilled and the hardware installed.
