After fixing the car's AC Saturday morning I went to work on the Fuel Tanks. Yay more fuel tank work! I'm getting so close to finishing these I can smell it, and it's not just the MEK fumes.
I forgot to post a little work I did last Monday night.
Monday 8th - 0.75hrs on the Flap Gap Fairing. Deburred and dimpled skins. The dimling is fast work with the pneumatic squeezer.
Saturday 13th - 2.5hrs on Fuel Tanks. Clecoed J-Channel and Attach Bracket eith Proseal, wiped down and scuffed edges of ribs for baffle install later. The J-Channel sliding into position wasn't too bad. I really see why you need to smear the Proseal on the tank skin first, it would be a real mess otherwise.
- 1.0hrs on the Flap Gap Fairing. Dimpled and riveted onto skin.
Sunday 14th - 4.5hrs riveted all the above Prosealed stuff together.
7.0hrs to Fuel Tanks = 58hrs total on Fuel Tanks
OK kids this is the advanced Proseal application class....using an inspection mirror.
Fuel Tank attach bracket riveted in place.
Flap Gap Fairing clecoed in place.
