Short Description:  RESTARTING FUEL TANK - ALTERNATIVE METHOD

AFTER HAVING ISSUES WITH ATTACHING THE FUEL TANK "Z" BRACKETS TO THE SPAR I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDED "CHECKOWAY" OR "ALTERNATIVE" METHOD, I SCRAPPED MY OLD Z BRACKETS ORDERED MORE AND STARTED.
-STARTED BY ASSEMBLING THE FUEL TANK ASSY WITH CLECOES, I DIDN'T HAVE ANY ISSUES WITH THIS, I FOUND THE EASIEST WAY WAS TO CLECO THE TOP ROW OF THE SKIN TO THE RIBS THEN PUSH THE ASSY TIGHTLY INTO THE STAND AND THE HOLES WERE PRETTY CLOSE TO LINING UP, THEY ONLY NEEDED A BIT OF A PUSH TO LINE UP AND CLECO
-MARKED THE CENTRELINES ON THE Z BRACKETS AND DRILLED THE CENTREMOST 3/16" HOLE, I READ AROUND AND DIDN'T BOTHER OFSETTING THE LINES AS SOME HAD SUGGESTED.
-BOLTED BRACKETS TO THE SPAR, BACK DRILLED THE NEXT HOLE, PUT A BOLT THROUGH THE SECOND HOLE AND DRILLED THE LAST HOLE
-NEXT I NUMBERED AND REMOVED ALL THE BRACKETS, AND DEBURRED, DRILLED AND RIVETED PLATENUTS TO ALL BUT THE ROOT BRACKET, AND STARTED TO RIVET THE ROOT PLATENUTS TO THE SPAR
