Left Tank Fay Sealing

Today I fay sealed the tank ribs into the tank skin.  Basically mix up sealant and put it onto the ribs about 1/16th inch thick, smooth it out and cleco the ribs into the skin in every hole.  I left the tank about 8 hours in the garage like this until Rebekah was able to help with riveting.  We then shot the rivets wet by adding some sealant to the dimple prior to inserting.  I used plastic post it pads over the rivets to keep the gun clean and allow for me to push the rivets into place firm with my finger keeping my glove clean.   I didn't get all the pictures here so will try to get some when I do the right tank.
