I used the AN526C big ugly screws on my ailerons and rudders, six on the
outboard side of the winglet, and seven on the top side of each wing.
The other side of the hinges were attach with pop-rivets. I countersunk
for rivets and filled with micro on the rudder, as suggested by the
book. The counter sink penetrated micro, not glass. The rivets on the
ailerons penetrated backing plates, and the inboard ones also penetrated
the torque tubes.
