I made two brackets on each wing that rivet
to the trailing edge. The furthest hole from
the spar is for the fuel line. Next are the
two holes for the pitot/static lines, and
the small hole is for the nav/strobe wire.
These brackets will hold them all as a
nice bundle inside the trailing edge.
Here's another little bracket to hold the
pitot/static lines from flopping around in
The pitot lines will pass from in front of
the spar, through the huge hole, then
through the bracket, and then out the rear
spar and towards the fuselage.
This is the sticky-backed cork that the fuel
tanks sit on.
Since the bottom of the fuel tank is
shaped like a rocking-chair, there are a few
places where I had to double or triple the
layers of cork. Here you can see a section
of cork on top of the another. My tanks now
sit in the wing with no rocking or moving.

Laying down the cork for the right fuel
Now I need to build the fuel lines and the
fuel return lines.
We added this workbench extension so that I
can now work on both wings at the same time.
Once the fuel lines and pitot/static lines
are installed, I can rivet the top skins.
After that, I'll work on the wing tips
and root ends.
