Fuel Leaks Fixed
I got the fuel tank leaks fixed a while back but I just wanted to update the site in order to answer multiple questions I keep getting -- yes, the fuel tank leak is fixed! The problem was the joint between the rear baffle and the inboard rib. Removing the access panel and smearing some pro-seal on that joint fixed the problem. Now I'm just enjoying this airplane very much.
My only complaints right now are cosmetic. I pull the nosewheel up on my shoe a while back and chipped the paint on the pant. I also have some places where the paint chipped from removing/re-installing the tank. I may take the plane back over to Bobby Potts (who painted the airplane) to let him pretty her up. The only problem with that is having to leave it overnight. I may actually just do it myself. If I screw it up I can then take it to Bobby and let me do it right.
