Brief Description: F/Tanks: Prepped baffle for installation
My AP ("Approved Person" or DAR by American vernacular) came around around yesterday for an inspection of all my work to date - This inspection is required needed before I could close up the fuel tanks or permanently install the leading edges. Inspection went great - he was very happy with everything he saw, hence I may continue - phew! ;)
I did all the edge-prepping and deburring required on the fuel tank baffles - used a combination of vixen file and scotchbrite wheel on the edges and cogsdill on the drilled holes. I then scuffed up all the areas likely to receive proseal with a scotchbrite pad.
I also took the opportunity to install flush rivets in all the spar to main rib flange wherever they get covered by the fuel tank.
Inspection done - build and airframe logbook signed and airframe stamped
Fuel tank baffle plates ready for installation
Rivets installed on foremost rib-to-spar holes which get covered by fuel tank
