The left fuel tank is still attached to the manometer and doing well. Once I have determined that there are no large leaks (like the one in the right tank) I will add about 5 gallons of 100LL fuel to the tank and let it sit in various positions. 100LL fuel has a blue dye to it and because of its viscous nature it will find holes that water will not. So, I will let it sit a day or so in each position and then look for blue dye seeping from rivet holes or other sealed locations.
|I brought both tanks into the house for a few days where its much warmer so that the sealant would cure faster.|
|Oh yes, in the mean time I finally got around to cleaning up the edges of the bottom wing skins and clecoing them in place for final drilling.|
