Task: Pressure tested tanks and sealed leaks

This afternoon we pressure tested the fuel tanks with Van's test kit. It was disappointing to find a few leaks. Luckily the leaks were in the rear baffling, which didn't surprise me too much. They were very easy to fix after mixing up a batch of sealant.

We masked off and sealed the baffling to skin joint, as well as covering all the shop heads.

We also sealed the tank access plates and fuel float senders.
