Left Tank Fitted in Place!
Note- Go to Left Fuel Tank Label, on main page, for tank construction details.
Getting ready to rivet the first top main skin into place. The wing walk doubler is underneath the inboard skin edge. -Side note, the blue protective vinyl will soon be coming off the skins!
Tank Complete! I will test it for leaks in a week or so, after the proseal has had plenty of time to cure.
Here is a pic of the inboard fuel tank. I sealed the access plate and all of the fittings. Afterward, I touched up the scratches and bare areas with rattle can aviation primer.
