Build Diary 10-September-05

Today I decided to fit the firewall bulge and bond the rudder trailing edge. Two dirty jobs!

The black tube is the firewall sealant. Lucky it was the same size as the JC5 and I had a gun to dispense it
I used the tank sealant to bond the trailing edge. I cleco'ed some angle to keep it straight.

Here you can see where I have sealed the seems.

I riveted the top and the side. Jo came out and helped do the lower edge.

While Jo was out she also helped rivet the tank bracket - the AD3 rivets here.
