Tom Brink of General Aircraft Hardware was generous enough to offer some people on the VAF forums 10 MS20615-4M10 model steel rivets for *free*. The idea to use these instead of the AN470AD4-? rivets are the pushrods are steel, and you can get some nasty metal disimilarity corrosion, hence these rivets make sense to be used here.


I spent about an hour taking the right tank on and off of the wing working on the pillowing with the leading edge. I finally got a nice tight fit with no pillowing on the top, and very very minimal on the bottom. I used the edge roller to slightly bend the tank skins down. I only had one area where you can sort of make out a bend line, which is fine by me. When it gets painted, there will be nothing to be seen.
