Cozy Mark IV : Chapter 21

Wing Strakes & Fuel Tanks

In this chapter you will jig and build the fuel tanks and storage areas out of glass and H45 rigid PVC foam, install fuel sumps (to provide fuel in unusual attitudes, including sideslips, nose-down parking, and steep descents), plumb fuel lines forward to the selector valve and aft to the pumps and gascolator, and plumb vent lines.

Pictures and commentary will go here as the work progresses.  See also time and expenses related to this chapter.
