Brief Description:  Fuel Tank to Leading Edge gap

Sent email to Van's Tech Support, HoustonRVBuilders forum about the gap between the leading edge and fuel tank skins. Larry Perryman from HoustonRVBuilders forum replied saying the 1/32nd was not enough to worry about and that I should build on.

- Removed the leading edge from main wing spar.
- Drilled the tie down hole in the leading edge skin prior to removal using a Unibit to 3/8".
- clecoed tank ribs to main wing spar and baffle attach Z brackets for final size drilling
- using a #30 12" long bit with depth stop installed to prevent hitting the wing spar, final sized drilled the rivit holes in tank ribs and Z brackets.
