Task: Pressure tested tanks and sealed leaks

After pressure testing the fuel tanks again on Tuesday, we found a few more leaks. After sealing over the shop heads on the baffling, it started leaking through the rivet heads. So today I drilled out over 200 rivets, put proseal in the hole, and squeezed new rivets in. I'm confident this is the only way to effectively seal the rear baffling in place.
