Brief Description:  wet sand and fuel tank leaks

Did another leak check on pilot side. Airspeed pressure indicator held 180 knots (and then rose to 210 as it heated up in the morning). No leaks!! Checked CP side and pressure indicated a very slow leak somewhere. Airspeed dropped from 180 to 100 in 2 hours. Discussed this with Scott Swing who said I could look for the leak but don't spend too much time on it as I likely would not find it. If it later presents itself it will show as a blue fuel stain and would be remedied then. I thoroughly checked all areas in side the fuselage, wheel well, and lower strake for leaks and found none.

Guide coated and wet sanded the bottom of strakes and fuselage. Did a little filling of scratches and pinholes with nitro-stan
