Reading this thread as the screws in my RV-8 rudder free spin. They don't appear to be getting any looser, but I check them on every preflight now.
Question I had; why is everyone going in through the front of the fairing, vice drilling out the rivets?
If it's a matter of having bare metal replacement rivets on a painted airplane, I don't mind that, as it would match the skybolt fasteners and elevator tips.
Is it more difficult to drill rivets out than to cut a big hole in the rudder tip?
What am I missing?
