Decided to build a jig for the fuel tank

This time, I'm going to avoid the wrestling match with prosealing the ribs into the right fuel tank. This jig will hold the tank at an angle to allow me proseal in the ribs more easily. I went to Lowes (aircraft and lumber supply) and bought these steel angles. I cut 4 pieces from the long angles and put 45 degree angle cuts on the ends of each. 2 of them are shown here.
