Moving on, after getting home I spent several hours in the hangar putting the rear baffle into the right fuel tank. I had one small setback in that I was one rivet short to finish the extended range fuel bung flange. Hopefully somebody around here will have one otherwise I will be ordering one.
One thing I forgot to mention about yesterday (the 4th of July) was that Mariah helped me rivet the fuel tank skins to the ribs. She did a great job and it was SOOO much easier with her help. I have to say I am very proud of both her and Travis and who they are becoming as they grow up!
Today is destined to become another "red letter day". I was invited to go RV flying with Jeff, Harry and one other RVer today. I guess the plan is to go to Friday Harbor for some lunch. Its a beautiful morning for flying!
