Fuel System Complete!
Left Fuel Tank Vent
Left Fuselage to Tank Connections
Forming and fitting the fuel lines turned out to be a bigger challenge than expected! The old lines interfered with the spar nuts, so I pulled them out and fabricated new ones. This was a real pain with all of the other pieces,parts, and wires already in the plane. *Special Thanks to Jeff Johnson for lending me a hand.
Right Fuselage to Tank Connections
Pictured is my aerobatic tank. I chose to put a flop tube in this one, hence the leading edge fuel line.
