Ran Plumbing in the Left Tank

Finally, supplies arrive to help me finish the tanks.
Here is a good shot of the vent line(long line across the top),vapor return line(short line across the top* Note- return line may not be required for your particular engine), and the standard fuel pick up(bottom right). I torqued all AN fittings to the correct settings. *Note-I'm using a single flop tube in the right tank for inverted flight, see right tank.

Here is a shot of the vent line at the outboard side of the left tank. I ran the line through a clip, attached to the fuel cap flange, and bent it upward to the tank high point. I hope this prevents fuel from dripping overboard during those hot summer days with full tanks...
