Might be too late but thought I would show you what the bare metal area just for of the aft stab should look like. The A-7 used a lot of stuff the F-8 did and the bare metal area was the same, here's a pic of an A-7's area, the F-8 would be the same.

The metal area is wedge shaped from the stab pivot point outward. It had forest green streaking from the rubber seal that was on the inboard side of the stab.

Sorry it took so long to post this, just found the pic on the computer. The pic was taken in Nov 84 on the USS Nimitz.

Something to offend everyone.

People who disrespect the American flag never had to worry about coming home under one.
