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.

This 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.

 

Here is the right tank mounted on the wing!! It's done!

 

Here the left fuel tank has been sealed and riveted! Let's keep our fingers crossed!
