Fuel tank details

Hours: 0.6 | Posted in Fuel Tanks

My Rolo-Flare tool arrived in today’s mail, so spent some time fiddling with it on a piece of scrap tube, then did the flares on the fuel tank vent lines and attached them to the bulkhead fittings.  Also drove the two rivets in each tank that were a pain before, where the inboard attach bracket is too tall for the straight rivet set (much easier to set now that the sealant is cured, and not lubricating the set; was able to use the single and double-offset sets to finish them up).  All that remains on the tanks is to encapsulate those inboard end rivets, Proseal the vent line fittings, and attach the baffles & Z-brackets.
