Task: Riveted the baffling to the left tank.
we riveted the baffling on the left fuel tank. It was a big
day! We first inspected the tank for any areas that may have
a light coat of ProSeal. Once we filled the voids we laid
down a tape line along the top and bottom skins just aft of
the rivet holes. We then laid down a 3/16" bead of sealant,
pulled the tape up, and laid the baffling down. We inserted
clecos in every hole and then set the AN426AD3-3.5 rivets
in the skin/baffle joint.
all the skin/baffle rivets were set we pulled the AD-41H rivets
in the top and bottom holes of the baffle/rib joint. Then
we clecod the Z-brackets in place and riveted them in place
with AD-42H pop rivets.
