SB 14-12-06 Replace F-1206F Bracket Bearing Brace

Van’s issued a service bulletin regarding cracking of the F-1206F bracket bearing brace.  The SB calls out for annual inspections for any cracks, and if any found, remove & replace the brace.  Rather than risking a difficult job when the plane is done, I elected to remove/replace before installing the tail cone.  At the bottom/right&left of the horizontal metal rate, you can see thick aluminum (cut from an angle extrusion) which constitute the improved part.
