Chapter 21 – Right outer rib install

Today  I cut out a rectangular hole in my converted right OD rib before glassing it into place to create the right fuel tank’s outboard wall…. Ok, forward outboard wall.

Here’s another shot of the converted OD rib glassed into place.  Note that the area in front of the greenish cross plate will be fuel and behind it will be empty space.  Again, this is to keep the fuel forward at this outboard point to mitigate any negative aft CG effects.  Moreover, this outboard fuel pocket is to regain fuel capacity that I’ll be losing from the inboard GIB elbow room mod that I did for passenger comfort.

Since the weather is a bit colder at the moment, I set up a heat lamp on these layups to keep them warm overnight.
