Fuselage to Fuel Tank Bracket Fabricated

I fabricated the left and right outside fuselage to wing tank brackets. This was a huge pain and I spent way to much time working on these guys. I screwed up the first ones, so this was my second attempt. The rough cuts were made with my bandsaw, then polished on the deburring wheel. *Warning*-Take your time, use a pro 90 degree drill where necessary, and have a variety of bits handy. The big hole is for my inverted fuel line to pass through on the right tank. I will make the slot cut to the 1/4 hole shown after the wings are removed. The slot will allow the bolt and wing to shear off in the event of an accident. I will prime the brackets later....
