Preparing fuel tank ribs

Category: Fuel tanks — Steffen @ 22:09 — Hours: 3

Tonight I started clecoing on the top skins. I have to make two skin reinforcement plates for the inboard top-skin walkway area, but these plates needs trimming which I will do tomorrow on our bench shear at work.

Instead I prepared all the fuel tank ribs, edgesmoothing, flange straightening and fluting. Thats it!! All done preparing wing ribs.

Unfortunately my camera battery died on me today, so no pics. I have ordered a new battery, should be here wednesday.

Update: I borrowed my fathers old camera until my new battery arrives. Here’s a photo of the finished fuel tank ribs.
