Follow-up on the rudder

I heard back from tech support this morning. They recommend drilling out the rivets, cleaning it up, and redoing it with fuel tank sealant. It'll be a pain, but I agree with them.

So now I need to order some sealant. Proseal at Aircraft Spruce is tres expensive, $78 for the smallest quantity, but it turns out Vans has it, or a newer incarnation of it, in 3.5 oz quantities for around $16. Horray for Vans!

I'm still working out how to clean the epoxy off the aluminum parts.

What did you use for stripping the epoxy?

The product is called Sure Strip. Here's a link to it at Aircraft Spruce.
