Wings - Fuel Tanks

Task: Mounted right fuel tank to wing, drilled Z brackets, final drilled fuel tank

Fit the right tank to the wing and used cargo straps to lock it in place. I then drilled the 5 inboard holes to the T-712 Z bracket and clecod in place. Next the leading edge was removed so the outboard Z bracket could be drilled. Then the fuel tank assembly was removed except for the two outter ribs and baffling. This allowed me to drill all the Z bracket holes. Next the tank was put back together, leading edge mounted, and the #19 holes on W-423 were match drilled. Lastly, with everything clecod in place, I final drilled all of the tank to rib holes.
