Elevator Horn Shims?

Working on my Elevator Balance Horn and the Lower Horn.  Both of them have a Gap caused by the Center Channel Strap.  I was thinking of inserting a .040 shim in both to eliminate the gap (see pictures in the other post.  Still haven't quite figured out getting them in the same post).  What do y'all think?See More

No%20radius%20%28640x640%29.jpgI got a little aggressive when dressing C75T2-3 (Rear Spar Attach Bracket for the Cruzer) and didn't have enough material to put a proper radius here.  Since this is a structural part, should I order a new one and try again or will this be acceptable?Thank You;Gary ReedSee More
