Brief Description:  Left Fuel Tank

Before starting work with sealant tonight, I checked the continuity between the sender plates and BNC connectors. All points that should have continuity do, and all that should be isolated are isolated.

With that completed, I sealed and 100% clecoed the outboard end rib on the left tank. After smoothing the fillets, I noticed the outside one would interfere with the proper fit of the leading edge splice plate, so I cleaned it off back to the edge of the rib flange. From experience with the interior ribs, I plan to wait two days before riveting this rib.

I mixed up a bit of extra sealant to seal the nose. I'm not 100% satisfied with it, but I'll touch it up before closing the tank. I also attached the vent line to the inboard rib fitting to get the line in its exact final position, and sealed it to the snap bushings and sender wires. I also sealed the inboard sender wire terminations and final installed it to its rib.
