Brief Description:  Filling, last prime, fuel tank leak checks

Cleaned up yesterday's work. Found a few more pin holes where were filled with nitro-stan. Sanded and Jeff did final prime.

Checked for fuel leaks on pilot side strake by pressurizing the tank by blowing into it and measuring pressure with airspeed indicator at 180 knots. Found leaky fuel cap. leak was through key hole due to a faulty o-ring. Replaced fuel cap with a keyless one. Found another leak right above the fuel sight guage where the aft slanted bulkhead, top strake, and fuselage all meet. Opened up the pinhole and filled with lots of Jeffco/cabo/flox.
