Task: Riveted the baffling to the right fuel tank

Tonight was a repeat of last night, but with the right tank. We laid the tape down, put a 3/16" bead of ProSeal and then dropped the baffling in place. Placing rivets in each of the skin/baffle holes, we then set all the rivets.

Next came the top and bottom most baffle/rib rivets which are AD-41H pop rivets.

Finally we set the AD-42H rivets in the Z-bracket/baffle/rib joint.

Second tank done!!! We can't wait to pressure test it once the sealant has dried!
