Redoing fuel caps

December 7th and 8th, 10h

I decided to redo the fuel tank lids after checking with Vans.  The issue happen when  torqued the bolts after the sealant was dry.  I added fuel tank sealant to the outside of the bolts, but Van said that it is not enough.

So I went ahead and removed all the bolts from all the lid for both the left and the right fuel tanks.  Then I spent many hours cleaning the lids, the holes and nutplates.  Then I reset the bolt with wet sealant again.
