Task: Sealed/Riveted the right tank.

Today, for the second time, we sealed and riveted the right tank baffle/skin rivets. I changed our method a bit to help promote a good seal. Instead of just laying a bead on the inside and smashing the baffle in place, we wet sealed each rivet and I also used a syringe to inject a small amount of sealant inbetween the skin and baffle. We hope this is the final solution to a leak-free tank.
