Iíve finished my RV 6 Elevator and working on trim tab. Is there a video that I can see that would help me finish this part.

My trim skin is not prepunch but the spar is. Trying to find a way to match the holes for the bottom rivets. Top is fine and easy to get to.

Could you use a strap duplicator to do the hole alignment
