Left fuel cap & drain fitting

Category: Fuel tanks — Steffen @ 21:19 — Hours: 3.5

The first thing I did tonight, was closing the tooling hole in the outboard end ribs with -6 round head rivets. I only squeezed them a little bit so I didn’t distort the rib.

Next thing I did was riveting on the left tank fuel cap flange and fuel drain fitting and seal the shop heads…

Then I riveted the outboard rib nose reinforcements…

..then the access opening rings and platenuts!!

Finally I placed the right tank skin in the craddle and clecoed all the ribs to it… almost ready to begin riveting the ribs now..
