Fuel tank goes in
The tank rests on three slats mounted on the firewall. These slats get cushioned by the felt.
Ready for the tank!
The tank slipped into its cradle OK. There is a wrapped and soldered cable that holds the tank in place. Some of the felt goes under the strap, too.
When that was done, we finished drilling the brackets used to hold the front instrument panel in place. This is a trial fit. The front panel needs varnish and a really neat drop-down map table (to be built later). But for now, I wanted to make sure the panel was square...
Brian drilled the holes for the rear panel instruments
We had to attach the data plate!
The brackets were drilled and the panel stands on its own. Once again, this is a trial fit. The panel gets more sanding and varnishing.
More soon. Enjoy
