The not so straight edge

Here's the final product. For some reason, I have a 1/16 inch dip along the trailing edge. The instructions say anything greater than 0.1 of and inch is unacceptable. So this is "acceptable" but still ticks me off, since the rudder came out perfect. I think this must have happened when I drilled the holes into the aluminum angle and the middle bottom skin must have pooched out farther than the top skin.
