Test fit fuel tank

Before closing the fuel tank I did an test fit, unfortunately there is some misalignment.

The marked holes are off by about 2 mm:

When measuring the centre-to-centre distance and compare the right and left spar and skin it’s clear. The skins are okay but the holes in the spar are off.

Current situation:

  • left wing top: off by 2 mm
  • left wing bottom: ok
  • right wing top: ok
  • right wing bottom: off by 1.4 mm

Misalignment left wing top side:

Right wing is a bit better:

It’s quite frustrating when parts are prepared carefully which takes time and dedication and then they just don’t fit 🙁
I will work with the factory to find a solution; to be continued…
