Drilling the hole into the elevator horn

Here you can see that the barb splicer fits perfectly into the center bracket. Then I found that a 1/8" drill bit fitted perfectly inside the barb splicer. I drilled the hole into the elevator horn. Then all I had to do was take the right elevator off of the horizontal stabilizer and enlarge the 1/8" hole to the final 1/4" hole size to accept the bolt that holds the entire center bracket assembly together.
