Not much today, but here goes anyway.
I had approximately half a syringe full of proseal in the freezer from Saturday (I think), and it was going to go past its 4 days of freezer goodness, so I pulled it out and made my rivet encapsulation dollops (umm, spelling?) a little bigger.
Then, I spent some time deburring and dimpling tank ribs.
After some more rib prep, I have 6 of the 7 ribs clecoed in place.
My gameplan from here onwards will be to finish up the first rib, then work on the outboard rib (there’s a reinforcement plate I have to drill), then pull one (or two) ribs out at a time, clean judiciously, put sealant on the flanges, 100% cleco in place, then rivet.
Then, make fillets, do some rivet encapsulation, and celebrate with beer.
I’m planning on one rib per night, but might get in two. Just a few more nights of miscellaneous work, then I can get started.
