Continued building left tank

Sealed and riveted the J channel stiffener to the tank skin.

 

Installed the tank attach bracket assembly and added a fillet of sealant to the seam with the forward rib. I used an inspection mirror to ensure I got good coverage.

Made up the fuel vent line and installed into the tank.

 

Sealed and riveted the aft inboard tank rib in place. I installed the bulkhead fitting for the vent line and connected the vent line to it.

 

I didn’t have enough sealant left to fillet the aft rib. So I’ll do that in the next session.
