My Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 Rebuild Diary 2007.

22/23-September-2007. Started covering L/H Horizontal Stabalizer.

I have also created a HELP ME page on this site for areas/parts etc that I don't know what fits. Please have a look especially if you have a Great Lakes 2T-1A-2.
Here is this evenings progress:

The left horizontal stablizer. I decided to wrap the cloth around the trailing edge and fix on the leading edge.
Wrapping the cloth around the trailing edge.
However the elevator hinge need to be cut-out.
Marked the hinge position.
I applied some glue to the fabric before cutting out the hinge position so it did not fray.
I cut and fitted one before cutting the second.
On the second generation Great Lakes the fabric is riveted to the frame. I have covered the holes with anti-chafe tape. I punched through the hole positions before covering.
I glued the trailing edge before marking and trimming the leading edge.
The lower leading edge fixed before the upper.
Fabric fitted to the lower surface.
