When that dries adequately, you can add the horizontal stab, which is basically your last chance to lock things down in alignment (with a little twisting here and there ...)
I set my booms so they will lean inward slightly for a cantilever effect. I suspect no matter what you'll probably have to trim and smooth the joining faces of the stab to get just the fit you want (or not, if you don't care).
Once I had everything in place, I just jammed a pin through each vertical stab to hold the horizontal in place. Make sure you have it parallel to the expected angle of incidence (whatever that is! Butch marks it, but you can't see those marks any more...)
Okay, walk away and let it be.
- Be careful not to shift things around when you slip the pin through.
