Task: Sealed/Riveted the left tank.
Today we pressure tested the right fuel tank. NO LEAKS!!!!!
FINALLY!!! We are thrilled! We didn't waste any time and moved
right on to the left tank. We spend the afternoon sealing
and riveting it.
is the right tank, with the flop tube, so the fuel float had
to be relocated to the rear baffleing. I crimped ring terminals
on 2 18AGW wires and then covered with snake-skin to protect
from chaffiage. I then ran the wires through the snap-bushins
in the ribs.
is the right tank mounted on the wing!! It's done!
the left fuel tank has been sealed and riveted! Let's keep
our fingers crossed!
