Left ER Tank Bolted On

Damn, what a frustrating day, it wasn’t that anything went horribly wrong. Just one of those days. On the positive side, I did manage to get the left ER tank 100% bolted on, all that remains is running the fuel lines and tank vent. I keep going back to how much effort it was for the mid bracket (4 hours). Just so many pieces and steps to get it fabricated. I’m hopefully the right tank will go much fast.

Also the day started with finishing the riveting of the mating between the fuselage and the tail. Two person job that went smoothly, and the rivets all looked good so no drilling and re-riveting required. To finish up the day, the flap tube assembly began.
