Brief Description:  Riveting left tank

Massive amount of riveting done today. I started by cutting some AN470AD 6-8 rivets down to use to fill the tooling holes in the end ribs. Just as with spar rivets, I used the C-frame and a 5# sledge to set the rivets and then gooped them from the inside with Proseal. I also prosealed the finger strainer flange and vent fitting keeper into place and riveted them, along with the drain flange. Then I put the forward inboard rib and the outboard rib in place with Proseal and used a squeezer to rivet them before applying a nice fillet of Proseal on the inside. I then riveted all the inner ribs and put a dab of Proseal over each rivet. Next came the bearing plate and the J-stringer, which were Prosealed in place and then riveted, along with the fuel filler flange and the tab for the vent line. I'll dab Proseal over the remaining rivets before continuing next time.

Rivet count: 357 Total: 15107 - Plus 549 done at Van's
