Finished Clecoing Left Tank; Fitted Left Tank to Wing
Jaime came out and caught me clecoing the tank together. This thing barely, and I mean barely fits together. This is a very tough clecoing job, believe it or not!
Jaime was really on a roll with the camera...she caught me clecoing the z-brackets to the spar so I could fit the tank.
Then I sat the tank on...
Then I checked the alignment. This thing fits together very, very well!
Tonight the Discovery Channel is showing a 1-hour special on SpaceShipOne's winning the Ansari X-prize so I'm gonna catch that on the tube. Besides, I'm really waiting on another #12 bit so that I can drill out all the left wing z-brackets and the left and right inner-most z-brackets. I'm hoping to get some serious work done on the tank this week. Tomorrow will probably be slack but I'm gonna try to at least get the z-brackets drilled.
Update: The Discovery Channel special is on the 7th, not today! Doh!
