Brief Description: Prepare Left Wing Tank for Proseal
After moving the parts of the wing tank to the house, I made a 'shopping list' and gathered all the tools and such that I'll need to assemble, proseal, and rivet and brought them home. I assembled parts into the tank skins and used a sharpie to mark around them so I know where to scuff before starting. I removed all remaining part labels (after marking the parts with sharpie) and ran the ribs through the dishwasher to remove an accumulation of dust and pollen. The smaller and larger parts will be cleaned by hand when I go over them with Naptha. Then I scuffed the flanges on the ribs, all the stiffeners, and all the small parts like the drain and strainer flanges. Only the rear baffle and Z-brackets are undone, plus the skin itself. Next is to scuff the skin and wipe with Naptha before beginning to proseal and backrivet the stiffeners.
