A rudder trim tab may be added to relieve pedal pressure in cruise flight. One way to develop a tab is to cut a shape from thin aluminum (for example, roof flashing) and temporarily attach it to the rudder with tape. It can then be bent and test flown, resized, or moved until a good result is obtained. To correct for constant left pedal pressure, you want the rudder to move left, so bend the tab to the right. A more permanent tab, painted to match the aircraft paint scheme, may be attached with rivets, screws or double-stick tape.
