Task: Tested left tank, replaced access plate screws

Today we pressure tested the left fuel tank. No leaks!! We were extremely happy to now have 2 leak free tanks!


We then replaced the phillips head screws called out in the plans with stainless steel hex head screws. Weput a #8 washer under the head since it was slightly smaller than the screws in the plans


Here is a shot of the right wing access plate after removing the phillips head screws and cleaning it up.

We then mounted both tanks onto the wings and put in 1/2 of the bolts and screws (per the plans).
