Brief Description:  Fuel Tank Attach Bracket Reinforcement Angles

Final installed F-796 fuel tank attach bracket reinforcement angles. DWG 38 calls for AN426-3-6 rivets, but they just barely protruded through the assembly. On the left side I used -7s but the shop heads were marginally small, so I used -8s on the right. My tungsten bucking bar is too thick to reach between the angles and the F-902 bulkheads, so I taped it about 1.5 inches from the end of an 18”-inch long 1/2” steel rod I use as a lever to wind garage door springs, and used that to buck (photo 2). Worked like a charm.
