Default Looking to borrow an ASW-27 horizontal stabilize in SW USA

Well, Tom's a bit on the crazy side, but I don't think he's an idiot.

Hey Tom, remember that day that Kathy Taylor landed out in the bison
ranch south of Westcliffe?* She borrowed your ASW-20 trailer for the
retrieve and forgot to hook up her elevator after rigging at the
airport.* Fortunately Joe Berger discovered the oversight when he passed
by her ship and wiggled the elevator...* In case you didn't know, both
Kathy and George have taken their last thermals; just a few months apart.

Do you REALLY need a elevator?
I've read here on RAS you can fly a ASW 20 without the elevator hooked up, if you know what your doing. Isn't -the 27 very similar?

I flew a Pik20 with the elevator not properly connected once, popped disconnected very early in airtow -- long story. But knew about someone who had flown an HP with one half of the V-tail improperly assembled. He got up under a big cloud and practiced using the flaps as replacement for elevator. Saved him. So I practiced in the Pik -- and it saved my sorry arse. I also practiced on my 20 and later the 27. Turns out to be relatively easy but please do start playing way up high!

So I ended up borrowing a horizontal stab from a friend in CA, but unfortunately, it doesn't fit. So I put his elevator on my stab and that also doesn't fit. Looks like I would need to remove about 1-2 mm to fit my wider elevator drive.

The repair to my damaged elevator should be complete in 3-4 weeks, so I'll just fly club ships when I get the urge.

I know a guy that leased a helicopter to a movie company for two months. The bird can back with holes drilled in the fire wall for a smoke system!
