Even more fuel tank riveting

Today Bill and I spent most of the day in the shed. By the end of the day we had finished riveting all the ribs on both fuel tanks. We pretty much used the same method as for the first fuel tank so I won’t repeat that here.

Here are the photos of progress made today.

One tank ribs done

Started on the other tank

Almost there

Ribs done

I have a couple of rivets that I need to drill out as I’m not 100% happy with them, however I’m pretty pleased with how the tanks are coming together. Time for a beer!

Build time today 7 hours.
