I've started float sanding the elevator before starting the skinning process. I've been worried about this task for a while because you would really be able to see all the errors in the structure below while trying to make everything line up perfectly. So far it hasn't been too bad. There are a couple spots where I need to add some wood but for the most part all the dimensions seem to be right and I'm getting good lines with the straight edge. The dimension marks I put on all the ribs have really been a great help with knowing where extra material is and where I should focus on to make things line up.
