Left Tank Match Drill and Countersink
I pulled the tank from the Spar and match drilled all the holes. Using tons of clecos to make sure it was as tight as possible.
Reminder ! If you use Dan's type method for drilling the baffles, make sure at this point you match drill the Baffle to the internal tank ribs. If you remember, we drilled the baffle to the Z brackets but never to the ribs.. This could cause some serious issues during final assembly...
I also was able to countersink the skins where the baffle is connected. This makes for easier final assembly as the baffle just slides in with the Pro-Seal gouped all over.
