Finish fabbing fuel pickup line. Roughen and clean tank access plate. Will need to add a hole for the fuel injection return lines. Fittings for this are on the way from Van's.

Use the stripping wheel to roughen the mating seams on the baffle. Had already scuffed with scotchbrite, but as mentioned earlier, was advised to be more agressive. Also used sandpaper to scuff the outside of the baffle where the Z brackets will attach.

Then cleaned the baffle, first with soap and water, then with MEK.

Tank sealing now awaits more ProSeal, also on the way from Van's.
