Here are some photos of the last bit of work on the left tank, final drilling the tank screw attach holes to #19
Here is the fuel drain at the lowest point in the Tank. Also, a picture from inside the tank, you can see the flop tube anti-hang up strip attached to the second most rib and the inner most tank stiffener.
Also, here is a look at the "final" right and left fuel pick ups. Flop tube pictured on the right, standard on the left. I went with both options for a couple of reasons. One, is weight.. Two flop tubes would have weighed more, and you really only need one if I decide I want sustained inverted flight options on the engine. Second is reliability; the flop tube moves and the standard pickup doesn't (need I say more?) I will manage fuel such that the flop tube tank is always used first. On my fuel selector valve I am going to label it as such: LEFT TANK - AERO/RIGHT TANK - NORM
