Tank Access Plate

Today I fabricated the tank’s leading edge angle bracket that fastens the nose of the tank to the fuselage. I also deburred and dimpled all of the ribs. Then used a fly cutter (nasty little tool) to cut a 5.25″ hole in the inboard tank ribs. Then fabricated the interior reinforcement  ring with plate nuts that the access cover plate bolts up to.
