Task: Fabricated right tank z-brackets
started on the right tank T-712 attach brackets. It went much
faster after having spent quite a bit of time on the left
brackets. The instructions say to mark a centerline on one
of the flanges (lengthwise). However, doing so will allow
a very close gap on the top of the flange when it gets pop
riveted to the tank baffling. So I marked a centerline 0.27875
from the flange, which allows a large enough gap to git the
rivet gun later on. Next I found the horizonal center and
then drilled a #19 hole.I used a square to keep the braket
aquare with the spar, and drilled the 2 other #19 holes.
The 6 outter T-712 tank attach brackets. The inner most bracket
hadn't been drilled yet.
I purchased a T-411 tank access plate today from Van's that
had no fuel float, pickup holes. This will be used for the
right tank which will have a flop tube for aerobatic flight.
