Fuel Tank Bracket Secured

The plans have you cut a 1/4" slot from the end of the fuel tank bracket to the bolt hole(zoom in pic to view slot).  I did this, just prior to installing the wing, with an air saw.  After wing installation, I secured the bracket with a drilled head AN4 bolt, 970-4 washer, and safety wire.  *In the event of an accident, the slot allows the fuel tank to pry away from the fuselage.
