Brief Description:  Installed baffles and inboard bulkhead.

Well, got the remaining baffles installed along with the senders. Only problem is I put the tank attach brackets on upside down on one of the tanks. Great, I will have to wait for the sealant to cure and then drill them out. Should be fun getting all the FOD from that out of the tanks. Once they are completely cured I will pressure test and then put in the backup optical fuel warning sensor. Also, one of the fuel senders was the wrong one. Both boxes were correct but they both were identical. Of course I have no idea which was wrong as the one that looked to be wrong fit the best. Oh well, I was able to get them to work anyway. Wish Van's had the capacitive senders ready. The fuel gauges are really secondary to the totalizer anyway and the optical sensor will probably be the quickest alert to any major fuel leaks.
