Eagle Project 2001

Installing the main floor, fabricating the bay and engine doors will be main objectives for 2001. One job that needs to be completed is the fuel tank repair and reinstallation. although I never saw a drop of fuel leak, a slight odor of fuel could be detected at the base of the tanks were they are supported on a piece of tubing. After removing the tanks I found both had rusted though were the tank sits on the tube towards the front. At that point I repaired any frame tubes in the area that were rusted.

This is one job you only want to do once so make sure you are prepared to fix any problems you will find after removing the tanks.


My fuel tanks are at the shop, I hope to get them back by spring of 02.
