Drilling bottom wing skins, Starting tank

2.5 hours

Tank stiffeners
Tank stiffeners (Full size)

I didn't take a picture of the bottom wing skins in place. I got them in and final drilled all the holes, then took them off again. After that it is time to start assembling the fuel tank. The first step is to cut out and drill the stiffeners. I cut out all of them for both wings. Then filed, deburred, and scotch-brited them. Here are the finished ones for the left tank
